With COVID-19 still very much a crisis in the Delaware Valley, Philabundance continues its efforts to ensure that individuals and families have access to the food they need while preventing the spread of the virus. Morris Arboretum wants to help. Simply drop off non-perishable food at the front gate of the Morris Arboretum during business hours, 10am – 4pm.
