Sen Obama Campaign to Hold Canned Goods Drive at Sunday Event

Campaign encourages supporters to give back to community at rally with Oprah Winfrey

MANCHESTER,NH— Senator Barack Obama’s New Hampshire campaign announce today that it will hold a canned goods drive at Sunday’s rally in Manchester with the Obamas and special guest Oprah Winfrey.  The campaign is encouraging supporters to bring canned goods and non-perishable food items for collection at the rally.  This week, Obama issued a “Call to Serve” and detailed his commitment to making national service a cause of his presidency in a policy address.

“As we work every day to organize our way to victory, it’s important that our campaign give back to the community,” said campaign manager David Plouffe.  “We’ve created a powerful grassroots base in the early states and across the country, and we believe asking our supporters to contribute a little will make a big difference for those in need.”

Food for the Hungry Drive Collection centers will be available at the Manchester rally.  Attendees are encouraged to bring non-perishable items, with a suggested donation of 2 canned goods.
