Break the Hunger Food Drive
Updated: Friday, August 2 2013, 10:27 PM EDT
News 13 teams up with Carolina Furniture Concepts and Two Men & a Truck for the first food drive to ensure underprivileged kids eat during summer break.
Today, you can bring non-perishable food items to two collection sites, Carolina Furniture Concepts in Arden between 4:30 AM to 7 PM and in Waynesville from 10 AM to 7 PM. We’ll be collecting canned goods, formula, rice and other non-perishables. We can also accept other essential items like diapers, toothpaste and toilet paper. All the items donated will go to Children First/Communities In Schools in Buncombe County and Communities In Schools of the Great Smoky Mountains, who will then distribute the food and items to children who normally get free or assisted lunch during the school year.
One out of every 4 children is at risk of hunger in Buncombe County alone. Help us break the hunger for children who would otherwise be underfed during the summer months!
