March for the Supply Drive
The Sewanee Civic Association is inviting individuals, local groups and businesses to help collect donations of nonfood items for the Community Action Committee (CAC). This collection will augment the services provided by the CAC food pantry. Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program benefits cannot be used to purchase any nonfood items, which includes pet food; cleaning supplies; paper products; household supplies; detergent; menstrual products; diapers; or other personal care items.
This is where you can help. Collect nonfood items and then deliver from 1–3 p.m., Thursday, March 31, to the CAC at 216 University Ave., Sewanee. Individuals may also take their nonfood donations March 21–30 to donation bins located around campus, and at Regions Bank and the Sewanee Mountain Messenger. The Sewanee Elementary School and the Interact Club at St. Andrew’s-Sewanee will also be gathering nonfood donations. For those who wish to make monetary donations, money is accepted March 21-30 at the Blue Chair Bakery, the Frame Gallery and Taylor’s Mercantile. Please make checks payable to the CAC.
The CAC will oversee the distribution of the donations to those in need. The CAC is an outreach ministry of the Parish of St. Mark and St. Paul, with generous support from the Sewanee Community Chest and individuals across the Mountain. For more than 47 years, the CAC has provided food, financial assistance, and educational support for persons in the greater Sewanee community.
This is part of the Sewanee Civic Association Treasures for the Chest initiative, a campaign to help promote community-wide service of giving time, support and donations. Volunteers are needed. To volunteer contact us. The event is sponsored by the Office of Civic Engagement, the Sewanee Civic Association, and the Sewanee Community Chest.
