Greenville Federal Credit Union will host a community food drive from November 6 – 17 to support Harvest Hope, South Carolina’s largest food bank. The public is invited to drop off non-perishable food and pantry items at any of the credit union’s four branch locations during regular business hours. All items will be collected and delivered to the Greenville branch of Harvest Hope.
As many families continue to feel the pressure of inflation in their grocery bills, the need to keep the shelves stocked at our local food banks is critical. “As we head into the season marked by food and celebration, we want to show our gratitude by sharing what we have with the most vulnerable in our community,” said Paul Hughes, President of Greenville Federal Credit Union. Rallying our credit union members, employees, and community to support those with food insecurity is especially meaningful this time of year. “A food drive is a simple way we can make a big impact for those in need. Dropping off a couple of extra cans from your pantry or your next grocery run can mean a meal for a hungry family.”
Currently, the most needed items are:
- Canned goods
- Dry Beans
- Mac & Cheese
- Paper Goods
- Peanut Butter
No glass containers, please.
Donations will be collected from November 6 - 17 during regular business hours at the following credit union locations:
The credit union’s two High School branches – The Branch at Greenville High and The Branch at Greer High – will also host food drives within their respective schools during the same timeframe. Students and staff can drop off items during lunch.
