The Food Bank of Greenwood County is teaming up with two local businesses to help fill the shelves during the busy holiday season.
Clayton Homes is partnering with the Food Bank of Greenwood County for a special holiday Food Drive. You can drop off food items between now and December 8th at Clayton Homes located at 1750 Old Laurens-Greenwood Highway (near the Civic Center) to be entered in a drawing for a 51” Samsung flat screen television.
Active Family Chiropractic is having their 5th annual food drive this year to benefit the Greenwood Food Bank. Active Family will be providing free chiropractic care from December 3rd to December 14th to new and existing patients who donate food.
Existing patients who donate 8 or more items will receive a free visit to the clinic that day – limited to one free visit per patient. Additionally, every new patient entering the office with a generous donation ($10 value or more) of non-perishable food will receive their consultation, examination and initial x-rays (if needed) at NO CHARGE (Excludes Medicare/Medicaid)! There is no obligation to continue care after the initial visit and donations are welcome whether you wish to receive chiropractic services or not. Existing and potential patients seeking care are asked to make an appointment in advance by calling 223-2236.
The most needed foods at the Food Bank are: canned fruits (peaches, pears, pineapple and apple sauce), canned meats (Beef Stew, tuna, salmon, Spam or Treet), dry goods (rice, instant potato flakes, dry beans, spaghetti, noodles), Soups (chicken noodle and vegetable), spaghetti sauce, peanut butter and jelly.
“I am very pleased that these two companies are helping the Food Bank of Greenwood County address the needs of the hungry during the holiday season,” Food Bank executive director Barbara Turnburke said. “The number of people needing assistance continues to grow in our area and these donations will help families have food during the holidays that otherwise might have gone hungry.”
The Food Bank of Greenwood County is located on East Avenue at the United Center for Community Care. For more information about the Food Bank of Greenwood County call (864) 227-1556.
