Toys for Tots...Second Harvest Food Bank

When you think of the holidays and Christmas time one thing always comes to mind. That is our less fortunate children around the world. We would like for everyone to know that this year we are a drop off location for the local Toys for Tots drive. You may bring your new toy to the office for pick up anytime between now and December 14, 2012. The Toys for Tots official box will be located in the clubhouse area and can be accessed during normal business hours. Also if you use our referral program we are waiving our application fees to anyone who brings in a new toy as well! Please help make a child's holiday bright by giving them a gift from the heart! Call 336-768-0354 if you have questions.
Dont' forget that we are also still accepting non-perishable food items in our office on a continueing basis to help our comminty families in need this holiday season. If you have anything you can give.. please reach out! You can help! :)
See below from Second Harvest:
This December our foods of the month are canned fruits and vegetables. These staples can be consumed year-round and remain a constant on our most-needed, non-perishable foods list. Since they do not require refrigeration and can pack additional nutrition to a home-cooked meal, they are both healthy and convenient.
Our Community Nutritionist Janet Hung shares, “Canned fruits and vegetables can be added to fresh produce or protein sources for a quick, healthy meal. They provide a great way to get vitamins and minerals from produce that isn’t in season, so please consider donating these items. For a healthier option, aim for canned foods that are low in sodium or sugar.”
We appreciate all your help in fighting hunger this holiday season! Your generous support ensures that everyone who needs a meal can get one.
Happy Holidays
