The Spice & Tea Exchange, located in Coligny Plaza, 1 North Forest Beach Drive in Hilton Head, is embracing Hunger Action Month in September with a monthlong canned food drive and giveback day. With a mission of “creating and sharing the experience of a more flavorful life,” proprietors Jaimie and Eric Burns focus on bringing people together over food, and they chose Second Helpings as beneficiary of their September charity event because of the shared food goals. “People behind the scenes need help. Our connection with Second Helpings will do just that,” said Jaimie. Make sure you visit The Spice & Tea Exchange and support Second Helping during the month of September.
The Church Mouse Thrift Shop, located at 78 Arrow Road on Hilton Head Island, has been a supporter of Second Helpings for many years. We want to thank them for their recent grant award that provides funds to train our agency representatives at a new educational meeting to be held this fall. One lucky agency representative, thanks to this grant, will receive a new refrigerator or freezer for their program by attending the meeting.
Support those that support Second Helpings. Take your donations to The Church Mouse Thrift Shop knowing your donations support many LOCAL nonprofit organizations.
Morgan Stanley recognized employee Andrew Cook, for his volunteer efforts on behalf of Second Helpings with a donation from their Morgan Stanley Foundation. Cook is vice president, the board of directors, and has served on the Second Helpings board for five years. We applaud him for his commitment and thank Morgan Stanley for this recognition. Cook and fellow employees from the Hilton Head office volunteer every second Thursday at the Palmetto Breeze FILL THE NEED food distribution program that feeds over 80 bus passengers traveling from rural areas to work on Hilton Head Island.
