Holiday Food Drive 2020

Holiday Food Drive Banner

The 2020 Holiday Food Drive was a great success.  This year community members donated approximately 2,500 canned foods and other non-perishable items. All food items were donated to Second Harvest Food Bank.  These donations will help meet the increased need in our community and will help hundreds of families.

Volunteers were set up at six drop-off sites that included Salem Lake Marina, Historic Bethabara Park Visitor Center, Rubert Bell Recreation Center, Hanes Hosiery Recreation Center, Georgia Taylor Recreation Center and Martin Luther King Jr. Recreation Center.  The Winston-Salem Fire Department had a crew and truck at each site to help increase visibility of the event.

Thanks to all volunteers for their participation in this worthwhile event.
