4th Annual Holiday Food Drive Begins November 1

The 4th Annual SIPOA sponsored Holiday Canned Food Drive begins on Friday, November 1.

We have a very ambitious goal this year of 7,500 pounds.

One way to make our own holiday celebrations even more meaningful is to help make the season enjoyable for those neighbors in need on Johns Island, Wadmalaw Island and James Island. When you go grocery shopping, we ask that you grab a couple extra cans of food, or better yet, a couple extra cases for our neighbors in need.

As an extra incentive to be extra generous, we’ll be handing out colorful wristbands that will designate the number of pounds you donated.  Donate 15 lbs. (about 3 cases) and you will receive a gray wristband, 30 lbs. (about 6 cases) for a blue one and 50 lbs. (8-10 cases) to receive a red wristband.  To get the wristband, please bring your cases in together and during staffed Lake House hours.

Don’t forget, canned foods only (no glass) and please check the expiration dates on all your cans before donating. Proteins like tuna, salmon, and chicken, and complete meals like hearty soup, stew and chili are especially appreciated.

Please bring your contributions to The Lake House and place them behind the pillar under the “NEW DONATIONS” sign.  We will weigh them before they are added to the cans on display and give you your well-earned wristband.  Let’s get excited about watching the cans grow into a mountain overflowing with canned goods.

Together we CAN fight hunger!!

As a child, I built forts in live oak trees, played in the pluff mud of the marshes, and galloped my horse through Lowcountry forests. Capturing the essence of that landscape in my art is a way of recapturing the joys of my youth.”
