The event began in 1977 as a way for Freeman to celebrate his friends and customers at his service station on South Sandusky Street. The first year was maybe 10-15 people, Freeman told the Delaware Gazette in a 2018 story. Those 10-15 people morphed to 30-40 in the second year to now 42 years later 900-1000 people are expected to make their way through the lines.
The donations are given to the John Freeman Foundation, a 501(c) non-profit organization, which disburses the money to needy families all around Delaware County.
All of the workers are volunteers, and local business people donate some of the food and supplies.
Hardware Exchange is located at 141 South Sandusky Street in Delaware, Ohio.
