Twenty one years ago, out of heart of a child, was birthed the phrase that has motivated thousands of people across our country to sacrifice their time and efforts to collect food and funds to help the hungry in their community. Many people in our community do not know where their next meal is coming from and it is, “Spooky to be Hungry.”
The generosity of our North Augusta community allowed 6,698 pounds of food and $4,294 to be collected during the 2013 “It’s Spooky to Be Hungry” neighborhood drive.
Together, North Augusta, we can do more this year. Together, we can help make a difference helping feed those less fortunate than ourselves in our community. Together, we can work to make a difference in someone’s life that we may never meet. Together, as a community, we can make an impact.
The annual “It’s Spooky to be Hungry” event is scheduled for Oct. 18 in North Augusta. An effort this large cannot be successful without dedicated, hardworking volunteers. The time investment is not overwhelming. Neighborhood captains spend a couple of hours distributing fliers a few days before the event and about four hours collecting food and funds the morning of the event. Spooky is a truly awesome experience. Please consider giving it a try.
We have a number of established neighborhoods in North Augusta in search of neighborhood captains. We are also eager to add more neighborhoods. If you or your group is interested in being a neighborhood captain, please give Keith Liner a call at 803-279-0238. Together, we can do it.
