Thousands of cans collected during makeover food drive

BEAUFORT, SC (WTOC) - The Boys & Girls Clubs of the Lowcountry plans to donate more than 3,000 cans of food on Thursday afternoon to the Salvation Army.

The donation will take place at 3:30 p.m. Thursday in the parking lot of the Boys & Girls Club of Beaufort.

The Boys & Girls Club of Beaufort, Boys & Girls Club of Jasper County, the Boys & Girls Club of Hilton Head Island, The Beaufort Teen Center and the Boys & Girls Club of Sheldon ran a food drive in the spectator parking lot for the Extreme Makeover: Home Edition Beaufort project. Spectators were asked to donate canned and non-perishable foods.

Boys & Girls Club staff, club members, families and board members collected food from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. from Jan. 13 to Jan. 18 for the drive.

The Boys & Girls Clubs of the Lowcountry picked the Salvation Army as its recipient because it serves Beaufort and Jasper counties, which is the same jurisdiction as the Boys & Girls Clubs of the Lowcountry, according to a news release.
