The 5th Annual SIPOA Holiday Canned Food Drive begins on Sunday, November 1 and will run through Friday, December 11.
Seabrookers contributed over 7,500 pounds of canned goods to the 2019 Drive. This year we decided to up our goal to a very ambitious 8,000 pounds.
One way to make our own holiday celebrations even more meaningful, especially in the current environment, is to help our neighbors in need on Johns and Wadmalaw Islands. When you go grocery shopping, please purchase a couple extra cans of food or, even better, multi-packs of canned food items, for distribution to the clients of the Sea Islands Hunger Awareness Foundation (SIHAF). Protein items like hearty or chunky soups, stews, chili, corned beef hash, tuna, and canned chicken, as well as canned vegetables and fruit, are especially appreciated. No glass or out of date items, please.
Please bring your contributions to The Lake House front porch. There will be a table there along with the poundage goal board which will be updated daily. Place your items near the “NEW DONATIONS” sign. All donations will be weighed before they are picked up by SIHAF volunteers every other day. And used grocery bags with handles are still very much needed and can be dropped off along with your food donations.
Together we CAN fight hunger, one meal at a time!
