Help the Assistance Center of Towson Churches (ACTC) bless Towson families this Thanksgiving by donating a bag of non-perishable food items. Our goal this year is to provide 85 bags or more! Let the grocery store do the shopping for you and purchase a bag from one of the stores listed below or pack a bag using the shopping list. Both lists can also be picked up from the ServeCentral table.
Available as of November 1, 2018
Bags can be picked up at the customer service counter of each store; they will also include a reusable bag. If you are picking up multiple bags, please call in advance.
