COLUMBIA (WACH) -- Join WACH Fox today for our 15th annual Share Your Holiday food drive for the Harvest Hope food bank.
WACH Fox will be broadcasting live all day Wednesday from First Baptist Church in at the corner of Hampton and Marion in downtown Columbia, as well as Palmetto Citizens Federal Credit Union on North Lake Drive in Lexington.
Donations will be accepted in Lexington until 6 p.m. and in Columbia until 7 p.m.
If you can't make it to either of those locations head to our Share Your Holiday page to find other drop off sites, or to make a donation online.
Last year Harvest Hope provided more than 28 million pounds of food to more than 2 million people across South Carolina. Through their partners Harvest Hope can turn each dollar you donate into five pounds of food.
Harvest Hope keeps your donations local. Harvest Hope Food Bank dedicates 98¢ out of every dollar donated to feeding the hungry in our communities.
This year Harvest Hopeâ??s most needed food items include:
- canned meat and fish
- peanut butter (in plastic jars)
- canned vegetables and fruits
- breakfast cereal
- personal care items (soap, shampoo, etc.)
- any nutritionally dense foods
WACH Fox would also like to thank some of our major supporters who have donated all 15 years: SCANA, The Mungo Foundation, Heathwood Hall, Richland County Sheriff's Department, Lexington County Sheriff's Department, and AG First.
