Surf or Sound Begins Collecting Holiday Donations for Local Food Pantries

Thanksgiving

We’re nearing the time of year when we begin to think especially of nourishing food and giving thanks. We are always grateful for our generous guests, who, throughout the year, donate a TON of unopened non-perishable food to our lobby donation box for our local food pantries. It’s not just one or two cans a week, nearly a third of our guests donate items ranging from canned goods to bags full of items and supplies.

The island’s food pantries continue to need our support during the colder months, and as we have done in years past, our Salvo and Avon offices will serve as a drop off for Hatteras Island’s Holiday Food Drive. Donations from staff, neighbors and island friends will all make a difference in feeding those in our community who might otherwise go hungry during the slower winter months. Donations made to our Salvo office on the corner of Highway 12 and Rampart Street will go to Lifeboat Community Church Food Bank and those made to our Avon office across from the Avon Fishing Pier will go to Hatteras Island Food Pantry.

Thank you for not only visiting our island, but taking time to be a part of the community by helping to sustain those who live here.

Monetary donations for the Hatteras Island Food Pantry can be made payable by check to United Methodist Men and mailed to Hatteras Island Food Pantry, P.O. Box 1591, Buxton, NC 27920. Monetary donations for Lifeboat Community Church can be dropped off at 27563 Highway 12 in Salvo, or by mailing checks to Lifeboat Community Church, P.O. Box 84, Salvo, NC 27972.
