The Coronovirus has impacted our community and left many families with school children at home, no childcare, and some with no employment. These families are hurting and in need of help.
NON-PERISHABLE FOOD DONATIONS
PORCH Hillsborough will provide OCIM pantry needs for food drives while the Stay-at-Home order in in effect. Some neighborhoods may choose to still do drives if they wish. We are encouraging individuals, if they are comfortable doing so, to give food donations directly to the OCIM food pantry, 300 Millstone Dr., Hillsborough. Hours are 9 – 4:30 M-F.
PORCH Hillsborough will continue to purchase online the most needed items for the food pantry when possible.
Instead of food, we will give grocery cards to families so they can purchase what they need. This month, we purchased $50 Food Lion grocery cards for our 36 families who usually receive a large box of produce, eggs, and cheese. We also purchased grocery cards for Orange County School social workers and the Family Engagement Specialists of the Fairview Child & Family Center, where Head Start is located.
With your donations, we can continue to support these families who find themselves in need of help. We will continue to give out grocery cards as your contributions come in. Please go to the DONATE button to donate online, or send a check to PORCH Hillsborough, 5461 Sunfish Lane, Durham, NC 27705. If you have any questions, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
