Balls Creek Campmeeting, in conjunction with Boy Scout Troop 327
of Sherrills Ford, NC will be conducting a food drive for the Christian Food Pantry of Sherrills Ford
(Hopewell UMC) at the campground during the entire two weeks of Campmeeting. Donation boxes will be in the Arbor and will be clearly marked.
All in-date food and toiletry items are appreciated, but the following are especially needed:
- pasta sauces
- individual serve macaroni
- canned meats
- diapers and wipes
- feminine products
- laundry detergent
Boy Scout Troop 327 will assist in transporting the items to Hopewell.
Additional information about the Food Pantry:
Every year the Christian Food Pantry of Sherrills Ford provides emergency food assistance to families in our area. The Pantry is based at Hopewell Methodist Church and is a local program that does not get any governmental assistance. 100% of the money, food, and toiletries donated goes directly to those in need.
They currently run two food drives per year - spring and fall. Unfortunately, the spring food drive does not last all the way through the summer. They begin to run out of food just as school is starting.
To help meet this need, Balls Creek Campgroud is holding a food and toiletries drive during Campmeeting. Boxes will be placed in the Arbor. Please bring in-date food items and toiletries and place them in the boxes.
