Tomorrow is a neat day for the Food Bank: a drive-through/drop-off food drive called Heart of Carolina.
In partnership with ABC11, we collect food and fund donations at various Kroger locations in the Triangle region.
I wrote about the experience after the event last year. It was inspiring and truly heartwarming: kids were singing, people were donating, touching stories were told. It was just about the most pure example of holiday spirit I had ever seen.
I’ll be at the Kroger in Cary on Maynard from 8 am until about 1 pm. Other staff members and volunteers will be at the Kroger on Creedmoor (at Strickland) in Raleigh and the Kroger on Hillsborogh in Durham.
You can stop by and donate food or funds. There will be Kroger “Feed the Hungry” boxes for $10.95 filled with our most needed items. Our volunteers will also have shopping lists that you can take inside the grocery store to purchase items to donate.
The ABC11 anchors will be doing live cut-ins every hour throughout the day… so you might have a chance to be on TV!
Besides, what could be easier than a drive-through food drive?!
Hope to see you there!
