Outpouring of Community Support Continues

November 15, 2020

The Holly Springs Food Cupboard has a lot to be thankful for as the outpouring of community support for the Cupboard continues. We can’t tell you how grateful we are for all the volunteers and Cupboard supporters who give so generously to help people in need during this challenging time. Below are some photos capturing just a few moments of the continuing support we’ve received during the last couple weeks.

Almost 3,000 pounds was donated last week by Woodcreek neighbors!

The grand opening of the Bestow Baked Goods bakery benefitted the Holly Springs Food Cupboard. If you are in the mood for a custom cake, cupcakes or anything sweet and amazing, give them a visit!

Thanks so much to Franchise Owner Rebecca Grovenstein and the directors and assistant directors of the Holly Springs and Apex Lightbridge Academies for supporting families needing food assistance with a food drive and monetary donation. What a beautiful new facility in Holly Springs on Ralph Stephens Road!

Suzanne Tarry, founder and director of Olive Tree Blessing Bags, donated gift bags for volunteers.

Holly Ridge Elementary brought in more than 1,000 pounds of donations, overcoming challenges of COVID scheduling to meet their goal of providing food for local people in need. 

Holly Glen neighborhood’s food drive the first weekend weekend of the month was a huge success!

Bless Your Heat Boutique donated money raised during the downtown store’s Holiday Open House event. The clothing and gift boutique offers affordable boutique clothing along with a variety of gifts from favorite brands.

The Cupboard received THREE truckloads of items donated through the Holly Springs Police Department’s drive for personal care items. Thank you Holly Springs Police and thank you Holly Springs community for your generosity and willingness to help people in need!

Cariann’s Creations is selling Santa Belt Buckets as a fundraiser for the Cupboard. The $10 buckets, which can be personalized with your child’s name, are perfect for Christmas Eve gifts (popcorn, hot coco, PJs), as an alternative to stockings, or as a gift basket. For ordering information, text (719) 235-8272 or message Cariann’s Creations on Facebook.
