2016 Food Drive Donations Update
During the months of July and August, the NC Eastern Branch Younger Member Group hosted a food drive to benefit the Food Bank of Central and Eastern North Carolina. The YMG encouraged members to collect donations of canned goods, other non-perishable items, and essential health supplies, at their workplaces. On August 23rd, the YMG hosted a social event called "Cans for Brews" at a local brewery, Trophy Brewing, as a celebration event to conclude the food drive. In all, 12 firms participated in the collection and the YMG donated over 830 pounds of food. In the spirit of the event's moniker, the YMG held two raffles: one for a gift card to Trophy Brewing and one for a Trophy Brewing Pint Glass set. Many thanks to all those who participated to make this event a success! The YMG plans to hold a similar event next summer.
