Residents of Ballantyne and tenants of Ballantyne Corporate Park collected 3,336 pounds of food for the Second Harvest Food Bank in 2009. This year Second Harvest needs help with their Back Pack program and Ballantyne Corporate Park is rising to the challenge by setting a goal of 5,000 pounds for this year’s drive. The Food Bank fills back packs for needy children every Friday to send home with them over the weekend.
This event runs from May 5, 2010 through May 14, 2010. There will be Blue donation barrels in the lobbies of almost all the buildings in Ballantyne Corporate Park. You can drop off your donations in the barrels or if you prefer, bring them to the Brixham Green Tent on May 14th between 1:00pm and 3:00pm. The Food Bank truck will arrive to pickup all donations at 3:00pm on May 14th.
The most needed Back Pack items are: 18oz. jars of peanut butter, the following canned items – tuna, chicken, fruit cocktail, ravioli, spaghetti-n-meatballs, pork-n-beans, peaches, vegetable soup. Also breakfast bars, applesauce and pudding cup packs, boxes of macaroni and cheese, small plastic bottles of 100% juice and small boxes of cereal.
