Holiday Canned Food Drive Update


“Giving is not just about making a donation. It is about making a difference”. – Kathy Calvin

The 4th Annual SIPOA sponsored Holiday Canned Food Drive is underway at The Lake House. We have collected over 4,736 pounds of canned goods so far….

We still have a ways to go for our very ambitious goal of 7,500 pounds, so we ask that you give generously. We will continue to collect canned goods through December 10th. We ask that when grocery shopping, you find it in your heart to grab a couple extra cans of food or better yet a couple extra cases for our neighbors in need. One way to make our own holiday celebrations even more meaningful is to help make the season more enjoyable for those neighbors in need on Johns Island, Wadmalaw Island, and James Island.

Don’t forget, please bring canned goods only, and be sure to check the expiration dates on all your cans before donating. Proteins like tuna, salmon, chicken, and complete meals like hearty soup, stews and chili are especially appreciated. Please bring your contributions to the Lake House and place them behind the pillar under the “New Donations” sign. They will be weighed and then added to our total.

Let’s get excited about watching the cans grow into a mountain, overflowing with canned goods. Together we CAN fight hunger!
