AUSTINTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – An Austintown resident organized a food drive to help local residents.

Dick Frost, of the Chicken Coupe Cruisers, collected canned goods and other non-perishables, toiletries and paper products at the Austintown Quaker Steak & Lube, located at 5800 Patriot Blvd.

Frost hosted it at the Quaker Steak & Lube because he’s been hosting car shows there for years.

“It’s been kind of overwhelming. The responses that we’ve got and I’ve had people reach out to me from, oh my God, Mississippi, the Carolinas, Florida, mailing me checks. It’s been pretty cool, so I believe that we can turn this into a pretty nice event,” Frost said.

Items were collected from 3 to 5 p.m. Saturday, May 2.

If you missed Saturday’s times, donations will also be accepter 6 to 8 p.m. Tuesday, May 5; and 6 to 8 p.m. Thursday, May 7.

Pick-up for Austintown residents who are in need will be at noon Sunday, May 10, while supplies last.
