Fall, Friends, and Food Bank Donations at Carolina Oral & Facial Surgery
On Wednesday, October 22,2014, Carolina Oral & Facial Surgery held its 11th annual BBQ and Canned Food Drive. It was a day filled with friends, food, and fun! We would like to thank each of the doctors and team members that were able to attend and more importantly their efforts to assist us in giving back to the community! This year we were happy to announce that approximately 2,700 cans were donated to Miracle Hill Ministries, Salvation Army, and Berea First Baptist. Each year we are so impressed with the outpour of our friends and their desire to embrace the needs of our community! We are already looking forward to 2015!
In South Carolina over 17% of the population lives in poverty, and over 23% of South Carolina children live below the poverty line. That means one in six South Carolina families will not have enough food to feed themselves each night. The food banks, within our community, continue to always remain in need of food items to place on their shelves and feed those in their time of need. The generosity of our guests was especially appreciated this year! We encourage our patients and their families to make food bank donations, especially in the coming months.
