Spring Arbor of Kinston, HHHunt, donate thousands of food items, dollars to Mary's Kitchen
Spring Arbor of Kinston and HHHunt has put together a strong drive for Mary’s Kitchen.
Spring Arbor had a food drive, encouraging nonperishable items to be brought to its building. For each food item, HHHunt would match the item with a dollar. This year, 8,107 nonperishable food items were attained and will be distributed to Mary’s Kitchen, along with $8,107.
“One of the core values is being an engaged community partner,” Spring Arbor executive director Stephanie Alphin said. “It’s an awesome opportunity to feed the hungry in Lenoir County and we’re thankful for the support.”
Regional Director Randy Jackson said HHHunt, the parent company of Spring Arbor, encourages acts of kindness and had no problem matching donations.
“We want to be an engaged partner in the community, give back and make it a better place to live,” Jackson said. “We want to be active, sharing our time and resources throughout and we’re thankful for the employees who have done their part to make this a better place.”
Alphin said next year Spring Arbor of Kinston hopes to make it an even better drive.
“Our goal is to get 10,000 food items and hopefully we’ll continue to have the support of the community,” Alphin said. “There’s no limit on collecting.”
