For the next #thankful30 program as we continue our 30th anniversary celebration, we are hosting a food drive for the Mid-South Food Bank! Throughout the month of February we're collecting non-perishable goods and we can't do it without your help. Our goal is to collect 1,500 items of food.
UPDATE: Due to popular response, we extended the food drive until Friday, March 11th.
The Mid-South Food Bank serves more than 300 charitable feeding programs in 31 counties in west Tennessee, north Mississippi, and east Arkansas. These agencies include food pantries, youth programs, soup
kitchens, shelters, day care centers, residential programs, senior programs, and rehabilitation programs.
We're asking people in the Memphis, Jackson, TN and Oxford communities to please drop by our offices with donations. Canned items include tuna and other meats, SPAM, fruit, soup, and vegetables. (Just no items in glass containers, please.)
You can deliver cans at three of our offices any time in February on Mondays-Thursdays from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., and Fridays from 8:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.

Please join in on the #thankful30 fun and help us reach our goal of 1,500. Thank you for your support!
Our #thankful30 program has been off to a great start so far this year! During the month of January, our staff donated more than 300 items to make senior care packages for the Metropolitan Inter-Faith Association (MIFA). We brought in shirts, blankets, flashlights, mittens, winter caps, and more!
Our goal was to fill 30 care packages for 30 years and we're proud to say our team far exceeded it! Additionally, many spent part of their weekend to help assemble the care packages. As a team, we volunteered 23 hours!
