FOOD FRIDAY DONATION DROP-OFF: As closures began to occur due to COVID-19, The Factory Market experienced a significant increase in service. We began Food Friday Donation Drop-offs and the community rallied to fill the shelves of The Factory Market. While we have opened the market in a limited capacity, we are still running Food Friday Donation Drives.
The Factory Market is open for food donations Friday 9:00am-12:00pm. Please drop off donations at the Together Community Center, look for the orange Food Friday sign outside The Factory. Thank you for caring for your community in this way! For more information, contact Kerri Burns or call The Factory at (717)687-9594. CLICK HERE TO CONTACT KERRI BURNS
