Lower Southampton Township participating in “Battle of the Hamptons” Food Drive

For the 3rd year, Lower Southampton Township is battling it out with Northampton Township and Upper Southampton Township to see who can collect the most food for our local food banks.  Lower Southampton Township will be sending all donations to Assumption BVM Church Food Bank.  Please help us out by donating non-perishable food items (peanut butter, cereal, rice, canned goods, baby food, pet food, etc.) between Friday, July 12th through Wednesday, July 31st.

Our various Drop-off locations are:

  1. Lower Southampton Township Building – 1500 Desire Avenue

  3. Dolphin Swim Club – 260 West Bristol Road
  4. Ferderbar School – 300 Heights Lane
  5. Playwicki Farm – 2350 Bridgetown Pike
