HTC partners with local businesses to donate more than a ton of food

 HTC partnered with Carolina Food Service of Loris and A&A Produce of Myrtle Beach to donate 2,430 pounds of food to Help4Kids on Thursday, April 23. The donation was made as part of the HTC Helping the Community initiative to support families, small business and charitable organizations facing economic hardship due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Help4Kids is stepping up to provide meals for students who typically rely on food distributions from schools. The donation from HTC, A&A Produce and Carolina Food Service included fresh produce, meat, and non-perishable items.

“HTC recognizes that we’re all facing unique challenges right now, and our students need to be at the forefront of our minds,” said Tom Vitt, director of public relations for HTC. “No child in our community should ever go hungry, and our partnership with outstanding businesses and charitable groups, like Help4Kids, works to ensure nutritious meals are available.”

Help4Kids plans to support children and families throughout our community through September. The organization is a 100% volunteer-based group that relies solely on donations. Learn about the food and supplies needed to carry the group through the summer distribution period from the Help4Kids website.

HTC will continue to partner with local small business and charitable organizations to ensure the cooperative’s neighbors are cared for through the COVID-19 pandemic and beyond. HTC also launched the Helping the Community initiative to spotlight acts of kindness happening throughout our community. Those stories are available on the HTC website.
