Donation from Food Lion Feeds Charitable Foundation
Project Santa has received $2,500 from the Food Lion Feeds Charitable Foundation to help feed neighbors
in their time of need. Project Santa will use the grant award to purchase and provide food to families and children in need
of food during the coming months and through the Christmas season.
“Project Santa would like to thank The Food Lion Feeds Charitable Foundation for their generous gift of $2,500. Project
Santa feels very blessed to join Food Lion in their endeavors to feed the hungry neighbors in the local communities Food Lion
and Project Santa serves. Because of Food Lion’s compassion and generosity, Project Santa has been able to provide food
to many hungry children in Davidson and Eastern Rowan counties during the Christmas season and throughout the year,”
said Keith Garner of Project Santa.
Project Santa will use the
Food Lion Feeds grant toward the purchase of food from Food Lion to feed those children and families in need in the local
communities of Davidson and Eastern Rowan counties. The food is distributed to those in need through the Project Santa Food
Pantry in Denton, NC, which is open all year round. This will be Project Santa’s 65th year of providing food to those
less fortunate in local communities. Much of the food is distributed during the Christmas season in food boxes assembled by
Food Lion store managers and other volunteers.
