Our organization will be holding a food drive beginning September 1 through November 18 to help support the programs of the Food Bank of Northeast Georgia. This is an excellent chance to make a difference in the lives of many as well as making a significant impact on our community.
The food and funds we raise will help the Food Bank to supply food the over 240 partner agencies in our community. These agencies consist of organizations such as food pantries, soup kitchens, senior centers, churches, and other non-profit organizations that are working to fight hunger in our community.
Here are ways we can help:
Donate online at www.foodbanknega.org or by cash or check made payable to Food Bank of Northeast Georgia
(For every $1 they receive they can provide 14 pounds of food)
Donate non-perishable food during our drive. We have Barrels located at the following locations: Prudential Blanton Properties, Athens Area Chamber of Commerce, American Pest Control, Keller Williams Realty Greater Athens and Athens Area Association of Realtors.
Donate non-perishable food during our drive at any of the next three Athens Chapter WCR meetings (September 16, October 21, and November 18) – We meet at the Foundry Park Inn. See our upcoming events page for more details.
I thank you for your participation in this food drive. Together we can make a difference.
Leah Leggett, President Athens Chapter WCR
