Clancy & Theys Charlotte partners with Second Harvest Food Bank of Metrolina to fight hunger
On September 20th, Clancy & Theys’ Charlotte office kicked off its food drive for the Second Harvest Food Bank of Metrolina. The food drive will run through November 2nd, and the team’s goal is to raise at least $500 and/or 150 lbs. of non-perishable food items for the food bank.
In the 19 North and South Carolina counties served by the food bank, over 527,000 people live in poverty – including 188,000 children and 41,000 senior citizens. The Second Harvest Food Bank of the Metrolinas serves over 700 non-profit partners including emergency food pantries, soup kitchens, homeless shelters and low-income daycares.
“Our team is excited to partner with the Second Harvest Food Bank of the Metrolinas to fight hunger in our communities,” said Robert Hall, Vice President & CEO of Clancy & Theys’ Charlotte division. “We consider our neighbors part of the Clancy & Theys family, and we have the power to make a difference for these family members by connecting them with the healthy and nutritious food they need to thrive.”
You can contribute by donating to the Clancy & Theys page or by bringing non-perishable food items to one of our two drop-off locations: the Clancy & Theys Charlotte office or the York County Government Center in York, South Carolina. The food bank is especially in need of:
- Canned fish or meat
- Peanut butter
- Canned low-sodium soups or stews
- Canned or dried beans
- Canned fruits in juice
- Canned low-sodium vegetables
