"Funds 4 Food" Virtual Food Drive In Ballantyne, NC: November 1 - 30

By

Ballantyne Virtual Food Drive

 

Ballantyne Corporate Park has announced its "Funds 4 Food" Virtual Food Drive benefitting Second Harvest Food Bank of Metrolina. Instead of collecting actual food items, BCP is asking businesses and individuals to make a far greater impact by making an online monetary donation this November. Monetary donations allow the Metrolina Food Bank to deliver greater amounts of food. Second Harvest Food Bank of Metrolina serves some 700+ local charitable organizations in North and South Carolina who support hunger relief efforts of soup kitchens, emergency shelters and emergency pantries, as well as low-income day care centers.

 

Did you know that just one dollar provides seven pounds of food? Some 17,000 people are employed at the Ballantyne Corporate Park. If everyone donated just one dollar, that would equate to almost 120,000 pound of food to help families in the Charlotte region who are food insecure. And the need is great, with over 500,000 people in our area living at or below the poverty level and with over 180,000 children and some 40,000 senior citizens suffering from hunger.

 

To donate to the Ballantyne Virtual Food Drive this November, click here.  Please be generous with your contributions and help end hunger in the Charlotte region. And because it's so easy to donate on line, you don't need to live or work in Ballantyne to help support this important cause.

Good for you. Second Harvest sounds like gleaners, Are they? That too, is something I believe in.

Nina Hollander - Good idea! A virtual monetary donation will go so much further for good, not expired canned goods and other necessary things for the homeless. 

America has a huge problem with homelessness and to many hungry people.

Patricia Feager hi Patricia...  I never cease to be amazed by how much hunger there is in such a rich country. This is just one food pantry and we have quite a few others in the Charlotte area.
