Help Harvest Hope Fill the Gap for Families in August
August 5, 2020
Harvest Hope is calling on the local community to help restock its shelves with non-perishable food items during the month of August during its “Fill the Gap” campaign. Each week, community members are encouraged to donate a different high-demand food item. In the past four months, Harvest Hope has helped fill the gap for hundreds of thousands of individuals throughout South Carolina.
“The summer months are an already stressful time for many families with children out of school and eating more meals at home,” says Wendy Broderick, Harvest Hope CEO, “As the pandemic continues with record-breaking numbers, we need the community’s support to help us continue to feed our neighbors in need.”
The schedule for the month is as follows:
• August 8-14 – Canned meals and/or meats (beef stew, spaghetti and meatballs, ravioli)
• August 15-21 – Macaroni and cheese
• August 22-28 - Canned fruits and vegetables
Collection boxes will be located at each branch location. Individuals can also drop off items at various Mattress Firm and Goodwill locations around the Midlands, Pee Dee and Upstate. The complete list of locations can be found here.
Groups and/or individuals interested in hosting a food drive for the items above should fill out the form here.
You can also shop our Amazon Wishlists and have items sent directly to the branch. Find your closest branch's list below:
Monetary donations are also always in need. Every dollar given helps provide 5 meals to a neighbor. Give online today here.
