Volunteer Opportunity: It’s Spooky to be Hungry (in association with Golden Harvest Food Bank)
Contact Name and Phone Number: Harvey Bellamy (706) 736-1199, extension 229.
Type of Activity: It’s Spooky to be Hungry is a food drive campaign that collects canned goods for the Golden Harvest Food Bank. It works through chapters in neighborhoods and volunteers that collect canned foods. If you want to get involved, find the chapter leader in your neighborhood or another neighborhood and tell them you would like to help collect for them. You can find the chapter leader by calling the Golden Harvest Food Bank or filling out the Contact Us page on spookytobehungry.org and requesting information. This activity is a great way for a group of friends to volunteer together and use the “divide and conquer” method to cover a neighborhood quickly. Parental involvement might be helpful as well.
Dates of Activity: It’s Spooky to be Hungry lasts throughout October, but the main collection date is Oct. 30 for South Carolina and Oct. 23 for Georgia this year.
