MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WBTW) – The Lowcountry Food Bank in Myrtle Beach has received its largest donation of the year.
On Thursday, the Pirates Voyage show delivered 32,500 pounds of food to the food bank. ”
Pirates Voyage collected the donations over several weeks. They invited local workers in the service and hospitality industries to go enjoy a Pirates Voyage show at the theater in exchange for donating non-perishable food.
“This is a great program here [at Lowcountry Food Bank] because when we donate over 32,000 pounds of food like we’ve done this year, we need a partner that can get it to those that are deserving,” commented Larry McCoy, the marketing director for Pirates Voyage.
The leaders of the food bank said although the donation is large, the food may last just to the end of the year. So they will need more donations right after the holidays, and they are always in need of volunteers.
