The Blessing Food Drive
November 14 - December 6
Join Lake Hills Church as we come together to support families within the local schools. Every year when children go home for Christmas break, the meals that they count on getting during school hours have to come from somewhere else. For many families, finding the means to supply these extra meals for their children is a challenge, and they often go without. Lake Hills is partnering with the Ingles in our community to provide boxes of food that will help these families make it through the winter break. We have a goal of providing boxes for at least 150 families this year and we need our church family and community’s support. We are working closely with social workers at Candler Middle School, Candler Intermediate, Pisgah Elementary, Hominy Valley Elementary, Candler Elementary, and Sand Hill Elementary to identify the families most in need this holiday season.
How to get involved
Download the shopping list of items at the bottom of this page and head to the Ingles on Sand Hill Road or Smokey Park Highway to shop. There are boxes located at each of the ingles as well as in the Lobby of our church in which you can drop off your donations. You can purchase all of the items or a few. We will also take donations in the form of gift cards. Notify your cashier that it is for “The Blessing” and they will take care of it for you. The total cost for each box is $70.40. Donations will be accepted starting November 14th up until December 6th. Once all the donations are collected and organized we will pack the boxes on Wednesday, December 8th.
On December 15th we will host a drive thru pick up from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. during which the families will come to get their boxes.
We need volunteers for both 12/8 and 12/15. If you are interested in serving either of those days, please sign up on this page.
