Food Bank Information

The A. L. Department of South Carolina has requested that all Posts in SC become involved with collecting and donating non-perishable food items to local food banks. Our goal is to collect and distribute 250 pounds for the year beginning July 1, 2015 until June 30, 2016.

Beginning with the August 2015 meeting, there will be a collection container inside the door to the post building for any non-perishable food items that you would like to donate. This should include canned goods, dry packaged beans, rice etc., or dry boxed items such as cereal or rice. If you would like to donate cash or a check to our food bank collection, please give the cash or check to the Adjutant indicating that it is intended for the food bank collection. Please make checks payable to A. L. Post 48 Chesnee. We will purchase non-perishable food items for all donations given.

The current plan is to locate food banks in the general Chesnee area. This is currentliy being researched. If more than one is discovered, some effort will be made to distribute items to a different food bank each quarter. There is NO intention to directly distribute food to individuals or families.
