A food drive running through November 15 is benefiting Christian Community Ministries (CCM) and Food for the Soul.

The local branch of NBSC is accepting donations of canned goods and nonperishable food items in its lobby at 501 East DeKalb St. in Camden. The local food collection is part of an NBSC corporate campaign which will benefit Harvest Hope Food Bank of Columbia.

 “Our business understands the importance of giving back to the communities in which we serve, and this is a great way to support the basic human needs of our neighbors,” NBSC Vice President Karen Eckford said in a press release.

Organizers stated that small cans and packages benefit the food bank at CCM, which distributes food to be prepared at home by individuals and families, while larger cans and packages are suited to feeding large numbers of people at Food for the Soul’s soup kitchen. Both types of donations are welcomed and encouraged.

CCM and Food for the Soul are 501(c) 3 non-profit charitable organizations, run by local boards of directors.
