Fall is for food drives!

As we approach Thanksgiving and remember everything we have to be thankful for, it's the perfect time to host a food drive for Common Cupboard! 

We're especially excited to see all the local students who are getting involved in feeding hungry local families. Without even realizing it, some of these students may be collecting food that will fill the bellies of their classmates when supplies run low at home. 

This week at Sun Valley Elementary School, several young ladies who call themselves "The Care Bears," kicked off a school-wide food drive for the Cupboard. And judging by the photo at the end of Day 2, we think they're doing an AWESOME JOB!

Cupboard. Day 2

These young ladies were part of our Booster Team for last week's Love in Action Fundraising Banquet, raising more than $1,000. WOW! That's enough for us to provide a week's worth of groceries to 40 hungry families! 

From Nov. 9 to 20, Central Academy at Lake Park's Beta Club will host a food drive for us (again!)  as we get ready to bless 1,000 local families with everything they need to make their own Thanksgiving feasts. You can drop off nonperishable food donations at the school, 3624 Lake Park Road, from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. We especially need canned corn and green beans, stuffing and mashed potato mixes, gravy and cranberry sauce.   

Ready to organize a food drive in your neighborhood, workplace, church etc.? 
We can even help you promote it by registering your drive with us!  Visit:
