Antietam Cable Television partnered with the Maryland Food Bank in October and November to provide food to low-income families in the community. The effort raised more than 3,250 pounds of food to be distributed to residents in Washington County.
Antietam Cable also donated more than $20,000 in advertising and other services. In addition, the company donated all food proceeds from a promotion it offered that provides free installation of services to new and existing customers in exchange for food donations at the time of the service.
Antietam Cable also provided a link on its website to the Maryland Food Bank site that provided a method for residents to make donations.
Brian Lynch, president of Antietam Cable Television, said in a news release that since the inception of the company’s food drive program in 2010, a total of 6 tons of food for the Maryland Food Bank have been distributed to local residents.
