21st Annual Share Your Holiday
November 20, 2019
05 Dec 6:00 am — 05 Dec 5:00 pm
Join us on Thursday, December 5 from 6am – 5:30pm at First Baptist Church in Columbia for the 21st Annual Share Your Holiday Food Drive for Harvest Hope Food Bank. We’ll be broadcasting live from the corner of Sumter and Washington Streets all day.
Share Your Holiday is a public service campaign and outreach effort by WACH FOX, along with our other media partners, to benefit the Harvest Hope Food Bank in the Midlands, Florence and Greenville to aid in their fight against hunger. The Share Your Holiday Food Drive for Harvest Hope Food Bank began in 1998 and is now the state’s largest annual food drive.
The goal of the campaign is to fill the food bank warehouses for the holidays and for the cold months ahead to benefit in need and underprivileged families and individuals.
Share Your Holiday will be hosting a Food Truck Rodeo the day of the event, and a portion of the proceeds from all food sales will go to Harvest Hope. Food trucks will be open from 11am to 2pm. They include: “Casey’s Big Dawg BBQ,” “The Belgian Waffle Truck,” and “Pawley’s Front Porch.” So stop by and have lunch with us!
This year Share Your Holiday will offer additional days to drop off goods for the holiday season one will be on December 4 at Palmetto State Armory (3760 Fernandina Rd.)
Palmetto Citizen’s Federal Credit Union takes food drop-offs throughout the month of November at all of their locations.
Share Your Holiday was the recipient of the 2000 & 2018 South Carolina Broadcasters Association Community Service “Merit Award.” It was recognized in 2001 as United Way’s volunteer “Group Award.” It was awarded the Richard M. Uray Service Project of the Year in 2002 and 2008.
