Why Are Donations Needed?
‘Feed the Foothills’ has been organized by the Carolina Foothills Chamber of Commerce to create awareness of Food Insecurity in our region and assist Operation Hope, ThermalBelt Outreach, Roseland Community Center, Steps to H.O.P.E. and Pop Up Pantry to serve families in need. The events at Harmon Field on Saturday, September 24th are intended to collect non-perishable food to re-stock their Food Pantry inventory, but all five organizations need financial support to operate and distribute food and supplies to at-risk households. The Foothills Chamber is equipped to transfer both food and funding to each facility through ‘Feed the Foothills’.
