Curtain Players, on behalf of Westerville Area Resource Ministry, conducted a food drive during the March 23-April 8 run of The Trip to Bountiful.

Generous Players and patrons donated to WARM 302 pounds of non-perishable grocery items, personal care products, and household supplies, along with $64 cash

This was the second of two Curtain Players food drives this season. A similar campaign during performances of Crimes of the Heart in December netted 238 pounds of goods plus $50 cash
