The Roaring 20’s are Calling

Each year Harvest Hope Food Bank holds a HUGE fundraising Gala and Silent Auction.  This year the event is March 16th and the theme is “The Roaring 20’s”

Harvest Hope needs the help of 10-15 volunteers to assist with the auction.  You can dress up or just wear a cocktail dress or dark suit!  The tickets are usually $120 apiece but you get in free! Dinner, dancing and drinks for a few hours of your time!  Only a deal the Great Gatsby would make!

Spiders are scary…

and so are many things but hunger should not be among them!  We may need professional help to get over our fear of snakes ( not going to happen!) but Harvest Hope Food Bank works hard every day to overcome South Carolinians food insecurity.

Now we can do our part to help!

Bring in your cans and bags of non-perishable food to the Student Commons anytime between Oct. 23-27th and watch the thermometer rise as we aim for 10,000 pounds!  A very tasty surprise awaits everyone if we reach that goal- thanks Dean Wilcox.
