Public relations firm makes donation to the hungry

SALISBURY — When the a.s.a.p.r. Creative Suite (a division of a.s.a.p.r. integrated marketing) gathered for its annual holiday celebration in early December, they hoped the event would raise a pile of food donations as well as awareness for the great need of local food banks this time of year.

Together they collected more than 260 pounds of non-perishable food and toiletry items which were donated to the Food Bank of the Maryland Eastern Shore.
