‘Parade for Food’ accompanies holiday parades

Nov 26, 2012

Haywood Christian Ministry, in conjunction with Haywood County Rescue Squad, Inc., is inviting everyone to participate in the “Parade for Food.”

Every year Haywood Christian Ministry hosts a food drive to provide food assistance to families within Haywood County.  Last year, HCM helped 3,565 families within the community with food assistance.

This year, Haywood County Rescue Squad is asking spectators of the local Christmas parades within the county to bring a non-perishable food item with them to the parade.  Members of the Haywood County Rescue Squad will be walking along with the parade processional picking up the food donations as the parade rolls through the towns.

All collected donations will be given to the Haywood Christian Ministry to support annual food drive.
