Beat Bama, Feed Charlotte!
Welcome and War Eagle!
Will you join us for the Beat The Tide Food Drive Charlotte in supporting Second Harvest Food Bank of Metrolina and our hungry neighbors? Making a donation is fast, easy, secure and will benefit a great cause! We're competing against Bama Charlotte, the UA Alumni Group, so let's make sure we Beat The Tide!
Did you know there are over 553,000 people in our region living at or below the poverty line? Over 182,000 are children at risk of going hungry every day. But each of us can make a difference with a simple donation today.
Funds are Second Harvest’s greatest need and a wonderful way to multiply your giving. In the big picture, they are able to provide 7 pounds of food into the community for every $1 donation! Funds help keep refrigerated trucks on the road allowing them to pick-up and distribute fresh produce, dairy and meats to over 800 partner agencies. The Food Bank can also purchase products by the pallet - securing much-needed items at great pricing. In short, funds result in critical and healthy foods reaching more people in need.
If you prefer to donate food, stay tuned to social media for details on where and when you can drop off your donations.
If you cannot make a donation at this point, help us reach our goal by sharing this page on Facebook and Twitter! Or, even better, send an e-mail to friends you think might be interested in contributing and include a link to our page!
Thanks so much for your generosity and War Eagle. Together we can END Hunger and Beat Bama!
