At the Cherryville Community Food Bank, the holidays really are the best time of the year, and volunteers have been working overtime to keep it going despite the coronavirus pandemic.

« We have little angels that are being adopted and each angel represents a child and on that angel their needs are their needs, » said Sharon Harvey, president of the Cherryville Food Bank Society.

« If you need socks and coats, this is there. If you want a barbie, he’s there. Then the angels are adopted. ”

Last year almost all 40 angels were adopted and Christmas wishes fulfilled.

The holidays add to the pressure that the small food bank volunteers are already putting on as customers soar during the pandemic.

« We grew from an average of 19 families to 20 to an average of 30 (more) families and are a small little community, » said Harvey.

« Communities have to help communities, we cannot do this alone. It’s too big a job and too big a problem in our society. Nobody should have to go to bed hungry. ”

Harvey and her team are preparing for at least a 30 percent year-over-year increase in vacation baskets, and that extra help to families makes all the difference for client and volunteer Manda Harrob this time of year.

« The food bank for me personally gives me a sense of comfort that they are there to help when I struggle, » said Harrob.

Harrob is now helping the grocery bank with their seniors’ meal program, a drive-through service where seniors can pick up a hot meal and put the other in the freezer for later.

« Everyone needs help and the humility to ask for help from those who want to help you, » said Harrob. “We are all fighting now, but there is help for you. ”

The rural food bank needs financial donations to bring toys under the tree and a nutritious meal to serve families in need in Cherryville. As well as having their Christmas angels adopted instead of non-perishable food donations.

If you donate online, by phone or by post, we will send you your calendar. Expect them to take 10 days to 2 weeks to arrive.

Only donations over $ 30 are eligible for a tax certificate that comes from the grocery bank.
