Through November 20th, in partnership with the Champaign Mayor’s office, the Glory Center, Family Video, Meijer, PrimeSol, and Steve Harvey, the NAACP is aiming to put a dent in hunger in our community by collecting bags stuffed with the follow items:
- Rice & beans
- Canned Fruit
- Canned Veggies
- Spaghetti & Spaghetti Sauce
- Peanut Butter
1 in 4 children in Champaign County encounters hunger. A new US Census report states that 1 in 3 children in the U.S. is living in poverty. This is a small drop in the bucket, but definitely a starting place. Your donations can be dropped off at any of the Champaign or Urbana Family Videos.
The actual giveaway is November 22nd at noon at 606 North Country Fair Drive. If you are looking for more information or to volunteer, you may call 217-355-5008.
