'Pack the Paramount' food drive begins

Posted: Updated:

Friday is the day to "Pack the Paramount." It's a food drive for the less fortunate in Rutland County.

The event kicked off at 6 a.m. and continues through Saturday. The goal is to fill every seat at the Paramount Theatre with food.

School groups, businesses, clubs and sports teams are encouraged to drop off nonperishables which will be donated to the Salvation Army, the Rutland Community Cupboard and BROC.

They hope to gather 20,000 food items for this year's drive.
