The Ocean City Board of Realtors is continuing its Food Is Love winter food drive through Feb. 28.
Donations of canned items, juice, microwaveable meals and more are sought.
The Food Is Love, Share Some Love food drive will collect non-perishable food items, laundry and dish detergent, as well as ShopRite gift cards, which will be donated to the Ocean City Ecumenical Food Cupboard to provide for local needy families and senior citizens.
