The Indigo Creek Golf Community held its second annual food drive on Saturday. Over 4,000 pounds of food was donated by the residents. The food was delivered to the South Strand Helping Hand organization which gives food to needy families. At this time of the year as the holidays are approaching, food is greatly appreciated by the organization in helping to fill the shelves of the South Strand Helping Hand.
All 598 residents received fliers announcing the drive asking residents to place bags of food by their mailbox to be picked up by volunteers. The community was divided into eight zones and drivers picked up the food by noon.
Many thanks to the volunteers who helped collecting the food and also filling the food bank truck when it picked up the food. South Strand volunteer Steve Hojnack was amazed at the amount of food collected.
This will be a yearly event and other communities are also urged to step up and conduct a food drive. The food drives are a great help for the local food banks.
