Bluffton Self Help – First Sunday Food Mission
Bluffton Self Help provides basic needs to neighbors in the Lowcountry, and right now, they need your assistance to do it. It’s experiencing a increase in visits, depleting its inventory quicker than expected. What’s normally a stocked food pantry now has empty shelves.
The nonprofit is requesting your help to re-stocking shelves by donating to their summer food drive.
Some of the most needed items include canned meats, rice, jelly, canned potatoes and pasta sauce. Personal care items are also in low supply. You can help by donating things like shampoo, soap, and toothbrushes.
The Executive Director, Kim Hall, says there’s a few explanations as to why Bluffton Self Help recently had such an influx in visits.
“The majority of the neighbors that we serve do have children. And so during the summer time, there is a greater need. This area is growing exponentially, and as the community grows, so does that need. And so we’re seeing a higher need right now for ourneighbors in need, and we want to be able to provide for them.”
St Luke’s will collect items on a Sunday in August in the Fellowship Hall. Watch this website page for the date. Thank you for your continued support of our local food pantry.
