The Maryland State Police Westminster Barrack will hold a food drive Sept. 25 as part of the state's Hunger Action Month.
The barrack will collect funds or nonperishable items from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in an effort to fill up a truck provided by the State Highway Administration. The items will go to the Maryland Food Bank, Capt. Holly Barrett said.
In addition to the food drive, the Westminster Barrack will hold an open house. People can stop by and learn more about Maryland State Police. There will be exhibits on the agency's K-9 unit and crash team, a chance to wear drunk goggles and a display from the Reese fire company, Barrett said.
Tours of the barrack will be offered at 11 a.m., noon and 1 p.m. There will be hot dogs, and they are planning on having a coloring book for kids, Barrett said.
The barrack's neighbor, the Motor Vehicle Administration, has offered its parking lot for the event, she said.
The state's fourth Hunger Action Month kicked off Thursday. Maryland State Police and the Maryland Department of Transportation will be collecting funds and perishable goods throughout the state, according to a news release.
