Food Drive July 15th & 17th

Katie needs your help to make her dream a reality.  Katie is hosting two events in July:

 On Thursday, July 15th from 5:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. Katie will be at Aura Lee’s located at 140-C West Richardson Ave. in Historic Downtown Summerville. She is asking for your help in restocking the shelves at Tri County Family Ministries by dropping off donations of canned vegetables, canned meat and peanut butter. Canned goods with pop-tops are preferred so homeless guests of Tri County are able to open them. Everyone who drops off a donation will be given a gift certificate for a percentage off their purchase at Aura Lee’s.

 On Saturday, July 17th Katie is asking for your help by bringing vegetables from your home, friends and/or neighbors gardens to Children’s Orchards located at 1580 Old Trolley Rd. to donate to Tri County Family Ministries & The Palmetto House.  A few tomatoes, a zucchini, a pepper or two, any vegetable will greatly help people in our community who are struggling to eat.  If you don’t have a garden you can still help.  Donations of canned vegetables, pork & beans and peanut butter are welcomed.  Katie will be at the store from 10:30 to 1:00 p.m. but donations will be welcome all day long. In addition to other store promotions taking place that day Children’s Orchard will provide shoppers that donate food with a 10% off coupon.

Please stop by on Thursday, July 15th or Saturday, July 17th with your donations and help people in the Low Country have a healthy meal.  Together we can have a huge impact on helping those in need in our community.


Day one of the food drive was GREAT! Thank you Ms. Aura Lee, Mr. Bill, Ms. Christine & all of the wonderful people who donated 231 pounds of food! I hope to meet even more great people on Saturday at Children's Orchard and collect even more canned goods, fresh vegetables and boxed food.
