Curtain Connects with 'Trevor' Food Drive

Posted: Wednesday, May 3, 2017, 4:58pm

Curtain Players is working to make this spring season especially WARM with a food drive to benefit Westerville Area Resource Ministry and its clients. Non-perishable grocery items, personal care products, and household supplies are being collected during the May 5-21 performance run of the Nick Jones play Trevor.

Curtain Players and Trevor audiences are asked to bring five items on their visits to the playhouse. The currently most needed items, according to WARM, include: cream soups (mushroom, celery, and chicken); canned vegetables including spinach and beets; stewed tomatoes; baked beans; lima/butter beans; mayonnaise; catsup; mustard; barbecue sauces; flour (pound bags); vinegar (in plastic quart bottles); baking soda; dry lentil, pinto, and navy beans; ramen noodles; personal care items including deodorants, shampoo, toothpaste, adhesive bandages, cotton balls and swabs; and dish and laundry detergents.

Cash donations are also appreciated.

Trevor plays at 8 PM Fridays and Saturday May 5-6, 12-13 and 19-20; and at 2 PM Sundays May 14 and 21. Tickets are available by clicking here.

WARM’s mission statement: The work of WARM provides compassionate, short-term assistance, educational services and spiritual support in order to encourage individuals to achieve a God-reliant, self-sufficient life while restoring dignity and hope. Learn more about WARM and its programs by visiting its website.

This Curtain Connects partnerships initiative is one program in an overall effort on the part of Curtain Players to give back to the community that has supported its artistic programs for more than 50 years.

Curtain Players has conducted food drives benefitting WARM for several seasons, usually one at Christmas time and the other in the spring. The theatre is already committed to two food drives in the 2017-18 season.
