#FeedTheFirehouse Spring Food Drive

It's that time once again folks! The  Firehouse Shelter needs the assistance of our community.
On May 6th, The Magic City Bloggers are partnering with World of Beer in order to collect food to fill the shelves at this local Birmingham shelter.

The shelter provides hot meals to thousands of people and could definitely use your help.

So check your cabinets or throw a few extras in on your next shopping trip. If you'd like to team up with your friends, churches or neighbors, the shelter can definitely use your help at ANY time.

For more information on the shelter, please visit or call them at (205) 252-9571

Check out the menu at World of Beer

Let's unite to #FeedTheFireHouse

See you at the food drive.
