Chick-Fil-A Fall Family Festival Donates to Grove Christian Outreach Center

(Grove Christian Outreach Center)

The Chick-Fil-A Mooretown location donated more than 700 pounds of canned goods to the Grove Christian Outreach Center food drive from its Fall Family Festival. While the location is under construction, it hosted a festival for its community, inviting local businesses and agencies to come out for a fun, family-focused event.

James City County’s Grove Christian Outreach Center was invited to participate in the festival and to receive donations for the food pantry, which serves vulnerable households experiencing food insecurity. The Outreach Center is currently stocking shelves for Thanksgiving outreach ministries and getting ready for Christmas programs that serve kids of all ages in a variety of ways during the holidays, to “foster relationships through love and grace in order to improve overall health of the Grove community,” it noted.

Earth Fare’s Annual Give Thanks Donation Drive Returns

Earth Fare is once again partnering with local food banks to provide clean, antibiotic-free turkeys to families in need this Thanksgiving. Shoppers are invited to give a financial donation at the register in one-, five-, or 10-dollar increments, or gift a whole, high-quality turkey (a $50 value). All donations go directly to a food bank in close proximity to each of Earth Fare’s 18 locations, ensuring that shoppers’ generosity is felt in the local community.

Earth Fare’s Give Thanks donation drive continues through Sunday, Nov. 26. Last year’s campaign raised enough to supply 1,000 turkeys to families in need around the Southeast, Midwest, and Mid-Atlantic.
