Join Us in Supporting Harvest Hope
To help our neighbors in need, Palmetto Citizens is again collecting monetary and food donations to assist Harvest Hope, our local food bank.
Share Your Holiday Donation Drive
As part of the annual Share Your Holiday Donation Drive, we are accepting monetary donations for Harvest Hope through our Virtual Food Drive Donation Site as well as at each of our 14 Midlands Locations through November 30th.
When you make a monetary donation to Harvest Hope, they can stretch your dollars further and help more people in our community in need.
In addition to monetary donations, you can also drop off any non-perishable food or personal care item donation(s) to any of our offices through November 30th. If you’d like to drop off a donation, please review their most needed items. You can also call us at 803-732-5000 to have a monetary donation transferred from your PCFCU account.
All donations we receive will be presented to Harvest Hope at the 23rd Annual Share Your Holiday Donation Drive on Tuesday, November 30th. The event will take place at First Baptist Church Columbia at the corner of Washington and Sumter St. In addition to our offices and Virtual Food Drive Donation Site, you can drive up here and drop off your donation between 6am - 5:30pm or text SHAREFOOD to 44-321 to receive a link to an online donation site.
In 2020, with the generosity of our members and staff, in addition to a corporate donation from Palmetto Citizens, we were able to donate $36,285 to Harvest Hope. In total, last year's Share Your Holiday event raised enough to provide over 1.5 MILLION MEALS!
About Harvest Hope
The mission of the Harvest Hope Food Bank is to provide for the needs of hungry people by gathering and sharing quality food with dignity, compassion and education. Harvest Hope collects, stores and distributes food and related items that assist families and children throughout 20 counties in central South Carolina.
Donations to Harvest Hope are tax-deductible, and 98¢ of every dollar received goes directly to feeding hungry families in our area. Harvest Hope does not foster a culture of dependency. Typically, if they can feed a family for three months in succession, it gets them through their crisis and they are able to be self-sufficient after that. During those three months, Harvest Hope frees them from worrying about food so that they can concentrate on the other things they need to do to get themselves out of their own financial difficulty.
