Feeding of the Multitude Report Despite the limitations imposed by the pandemic, The Feeding of the Multitude was an unqualified success. Over 1200 bags of groceries and 900 turkeys were distributed on Saturday November 22 and 165 plated meals were taken to shut-ins. The number of turkeys was facilitated by generous monetary donations. The Sea Islands Hunger Awareness Foundation Board was pleased to donate $1,000 to The Feeding of the Multitude to help purchase turkeys for the families. See the full report and more pictures here!
Canned Food Drive
Through Friday, December 11, Seabrookers will be collecting canned goods for distribution to Sea Islands Hunger Awareness clients. Increased by 500 pounds, this year’s goal is 8,000 pounds! They know they CAN do it! To help our neighbors in need on Johns and Wadmalaw Island, they are picking up extra cans at the grocery, especially multipacks, high in protein, and plenty of fruits and veggies! No glass or out of date items, please. All contributions should be taken to the Lake House front porch. There will be a table there along with the poundage goal board which will be updated daily. Place your items near the “NEW DONATIONS” sign. All donations will be weighed before they are picked up by SIHAF volunteers every other day. And used grocery bags with handles are still very much needed and can be dropped off along with your food donations. Thank you Seabrook Island Neighbors! We’ll report the results of the drive in our next newsletter!
