Matthews, N.C. (PRWEB) July 27, 2015
In partnership with the Washington Nationals, local Harris Teeter stores are hosting a food drive now through Aug. 10, 2015 to support its local food bank partners.
In May, Harris Teeter donated $225,000 to its various food bank partners and is hosting this food drive to help raise additional awareness to the problems of hunger and food insecurity.
Donations made at Harris Teeter locations will benefit Capital Area Food Bank and Loudoun Interfaith Relief; beneficiaries are displayed the collection bins in each store.
In addition to donating food at local Harris Teeter stores, Nationals fans may bring non-perishable food items to Nationals Park on Aug. 8 and 9 when the team faces the Colorado Rockies.
Volunteers will collect donations outside the Center Field Gate from the time gates open through the fourth inning. Donations made at Nationals Park will benefit Capital Area Food Bank.
Fans who donate three non-perishable food items at the ballpark will receive two tickets to a future game, while supplies last. Additionally, the first 500 fans to donate Harris Teeter Brands canned goods on Aug. 8 and the first 500 fans to donate Harris Teeter Brands canned goods on Aug. 9 will also receive $5 worth of NatsBucks.
Please join our team and the Nationals in the fight against hunger.
