Peace Haven Food Drive

by Terry Watson | November 13th, 2013

Food-BankPeace Haven is a company that prides itself in serving our community. To that end we have partnered with Greensboro Urban Ministries to host our first Annual Fundraiser this festive season. The objective of the fundraiser is to collect food donations to help needy families within Greensboro City Limits. Our plan is to adopt such needy families and feed them during the holiday season.

Our food drive will be facilitated by a “Donation Bus” which we plan to launch at an event downtown on November 5th 2013. The bus will be stationed at strategic locations downtown, Thursdays thru Sundays and will serve to remind the community of the presence of needy families in our midst as we celebrate this festive season.

During the week we will relocate the bus to different locations, specifically food retail shops and restaurants in bid to continue the publicity and to receive food donations. Merchants signed up to this include Food Lion, Target, Golden Corral, Applebee’s, Long Horn Steak House to name a few. Our team of volunteers will be managing the food collection process at these sites with the goal of filling the bus.
As mentioned, we plan to have the fund raising launch on November 5, 2013.

The launch will be held on the curbside of a strategic location downtown. To this end, Churchill’s on Elm St has generously offered their place for this event. The “Donation Bus” will be on location on that day and we hope to have the Mayor as well as a representative from Greensboro Urban Ministries attend the launch.

The drive is expected to continue for a month and will culminate in an event on December 5, 2013 at Churchill’s again. The theme of this event will be “Adopt A Needy Family” and some of the highlights planned for this evening will be the auctioning off of dates with some of Greensboro’s finest bachelors and bachelorettes. The date packages to be offered for auction together with the bachelors and bachelorettes will be sponsored by local businesses including Applebee’s, Ruby Tuesday, Stameys, Long Horn Steak House, Outback Steak House, Mamas, Regal Cinema Theater, etc. We are also working on other fun fundraising activities for that evening.
