STATESVILLE, N.C. – The EnergyUnited Foundation recently presented five additional “Drive to Shine” grants to food banks in Alexander, Forsyth, Mecklenburg, Rockingham and Yadkin counties. The donations were spotlighted during an official presentation on Zoom with representatives from Christian Crisis Center (Alexander), Clemmons Food Pantry (Forsyth), God’s Helping Hands Pantry (Rockingham), Angels and Sparrows Soup Kitchen (Mecklenburg) and Yadkin Christian Ministries (Yadkin).
“It was quite an honor to be able to meet with representatives from these five food banks to learn even more about their efforts to eradicate food insecurity in their communities,” said Debra Citta, administrator of the EnergyUnited Foundation. “Each community has faced their own set of unique challenges during the crisis but the common solution to these problems has been cooperation from community leaders and public servants alike who worked tirelessly to extend a helping hand to others.”
In addition to these five donations, the Foundation has also disbursed all remaining checks for its Drive to Shine campaign recipients. The complete list of recipients can be seen in the table below.
The EnergyUnited Foundation is a voluntary, member-funded non-profit organization supported by EnergyUnited’s Operation Round-Up program.
