The Snack Pack program has wrapped up their annual fundraising food drives with Ameris Bank on Lake Murray Boulevard.
The bank was filled as well as a 40 foot container with more than 493,000 food items. Ameris will present a matching check next month. This will go a long way toward the $188,000 needed for this school year to supply more than 800 students a week with a bag of at least 16 food items to take home for the weekend.
A big thanks go out to Ameris Bank, Walmart, Sams, Mickey Epting, the MJM Foundation, the Optimist Club of St. Andrews-Irmo, The Lake Murray Rotary Club, Mid Carolina Electric Cooperative, Blue Cross Blue Shield, McGregor Presbyterian Church and the Ray Tanner Foundation.
Anyone interested in helping with this program can contact Stuart Stout at 781-7330.
