Valentine’s Day is the perfect holiday to think of others. While your mind may be on flowers, chocolates and the Hallmark card that perfectly states your sentiments, there is something else you can be a part of.
The Ton of Love Food Drive is a way to show some love to others. The North Carolina Aquarium on Roanoke Island, NC is spearheading this event with a goal of collecting one ton of food for local families.
You have until Valentine’s Day, February 14, 2014, to visit the Roanoke Island Food Pantry to drop off your non-perishable food items. This dedicated food pantry helps local families all year and shelves tend be a bit sparse after the holidays. A few items will go a long way in blessing a family in need so raid your pantry at home or fill a couple of extra bags the next time you go to the grocery store.
Need some ideas?
- Cans of soup and stew
- Canned fruit
- Canned meats such as tuna and salmon
- Peanut butter
- Rice, beans and pasta
- Coffee and tea bags
Visit the aquarium’s website or call (252) 473-3494 for more information.
This could be a fun way of getting the whole family involved in finding creative ways to help others. The North Carolina Aquarium is a great place that our guests at The White Doe Inn love to spend a day. Let’s support this great cause and spread some Valentine’s Day love!
