South River EMC Collects Food For Salvation Army

July 31, 2012

South River EMC is holding a non-perishable food drive for the Salvation Army of Harnett County. From July 30 to August 10, food donations will be accepted at both offices.

The Salvation Army is in need of food, because with children out of school for the summer, the nonprofit agency is running low on food. While many people donate food during the holidays, with the economy remaining sluggish, families continue to struggle to feed everyone.

Help out an organization, and a community in need. Donate non-perishable items like macaroni and cheese, vegetables, raviolis, and oodles of noodles. If you have children or grandchildren, think of their favorite food. If you find a deal, purchase it.

While you cannot drop off these items at one of the barrels, if you are close to a Salvation Army, ask if they need any lunchmeat, typically families with children will get lunchmeat for sandwiches.

Interested in donating food? Visit a South River EMC office, both offices have barrels in their lobby that are accepting food.

South River EMC is a locally-owned and operated electric cooperative, which provides electric service to 42,000 homes, farms and businesses in parts of Harnett, Cumberland, Sampson, Johnston and Bladen counties.
