Laurel, MD – (November 27, 2013) Tanks Direct will be sponsoring a canned food drive to benefit the Maryland Food Bank from November 27th through December 27th. Tanks Direct aims to collect two thousand canned goods in a one-month period.

“We are elevating our call for action to contribute to charitable causes such as the Maryland Food Bank. With so many Marylanders struggling to thrive, we feel it is increasingly more important to contribute to the general well-being of our Maryland community,” stated Jeffrey Shultz, General Manager at Tanks Direct.

Canned and non-perishable food, as well as non-food items, can be donated during business hours at a drop box located in Tanks Direct’s office (8580 Laureldale Drive, Laurel, MD 20724) or dropped off after hours near the office entrance. Donations are being accepted now through December 27, 2013.
