SC – State parks plan food drive Saturday

South Carolina’s 47 state parks will unite on a common project Saturday, one designed to help people in need.

As part of the park service’s Hunger Takes No Vacation food drive, state parks throughout South Carolina will ask visitors to Pack A Park Truck with food.

Donations of canned goods and other nonperishable items will be collected Saturday, kicking off a five-month collaboration with the South Carolina Food Bank Association.

The goal for Saturday is to fill park truck with unopened, nonperishable food items and to raise awareness about the year-round struggle with hunger. The parks will donate all contributions to local food banks.

“We’re inviting our local communities, as well as people who are camping with us, staying with us in cabins, simply visiting for the day, or vacationing nearby to help us fill these park trucks with donations that can help feed the needy and hungry,” said Duane Parrish, South Carolina parks, recreation and tourism director.
