Lees-McRae High Country Alumni Chapter Hosting Food Drive for the Hunger and Health Coalition

Published Monday, November 30, 2020 at 4:05 pm
 
There’s no better way to celebrate the holidays, than by giving back. Join the Lees-McRae College High Country Chapter, Boone Police Department, and the Hunger and Health Coalition in serving our local community by donating non-perishable food items.
 
The food drive will run from Monday, November 30 to Friday, December 11. This is a great way to help a family in need to have a memorable holiday. Donated items include anything with a long shelf life including canned foods, peanut butter, pasta and more. To help supplement food for the holidays, the alumni chapter is asking for items that can help make a holiday dinner. These items can include stuffing, canned vegetables, cranberry sauce, packets of gravy, and more.
 
Two Ways to Donate:
1. Drop off any number of items to one of our two drop-off locations between November 30 and December 11.
-Boone Police Department:
1500 Blowing Rock Road Boone, NC 28607
The donation box will be located in the foyer of the police station.
 
-Lees-McRae College Alumni House:
191 Main St W, Banner Elk, NC 28604
The donation box will be located outside in the Little Free Library located outside of the alumni house on campus.
