Starting Sunday, April 28th, and through the week until Saturday, May 4th, Montgomery County’s Ride on Bus will kick of its 32nd Annual “Give and Ride Week.”
The County bus services are giving free rides and in exchange encourage residents to donate to the Manna Food Center in Gaithersburg. Residents can give donations to the center directly or through a Ride On Bus Operator.
These efforts are to provide food for 32,000 county residents, and send food bundles home to over 2,800 elementary school students to get them through the weekend.
To kick-off the event, Montgomery County Executive Marc Elrich, County Councilmember Sidney Katz, County Director of Transportation Al Roshdieh and Manna Food Center Chief Executive Officer Jackie DeCarlo will be present for the ceremonies at the traffic circle near the County Executive Office Building at 101 Monroe Street in Rockville.
