Drop off food and help us win

by Andrea Powell, HPCCR Marketing Manager

Broncos vs Panthers Hospice spiritHere in the Carolinas, we are bona fide Panthers fanatics! We are so excited that our team is in the Super Bowl that we practically can’t stand it. After all, this game represents competition at its finest. And who doesn’t love a little competition??

Well, turns out HPCCR does. Because the gauntlet has been thrown all the way from Denver and we are up to the challenge. Raring to go. Oh, we are ALL IN!

Here’s the deal: The Denver Hospice and HPCCR will each collect as much food (and non-food items like dish detergent and shampoo) that they can until this Friday, February 5. The hospice that amasses the most items (measured by weight) per full time employee will win.

This is where you come in. YOU can help us win this friendly wager! Not to mention, you can also help us make a difference in our community. We will be taking donations of canned food or household items (list is below) at ANY of our locations between now and this Friday. The heavier the better (remember that weight measurement??) but we’ll take all your offerings! The Second Harvest Food Bank has been apprised of this competition and has kindly offered to come pick up our massive collection of goods at our locations.

Second Harvest is helping out another way too. If you prefer to make a cash/check/credit card donation instead of bringing in items, Second Harvest will give us ‘credit’ for seven pounds of food for every dollar donated.  If this option sounds like the way you want to go, please click here and select SUPER BOWL HOSPICE CHALLENGE where you are asked, “What brought you to the site today?”

It’s as simple as that. Now it’s time to rummage through your cabinets or go to the store and find the heaviest supplies you can (or pull out your credit card to donate).

Because you’ve heard the term “bury the competition”, right? Well, we are going to bury Denver Hospice. In a mountain of food. But, you know, we’ll do it friendly-like. With southern charm. We’ll take that gauntlet and mail it back to Denver with an RC Cola and a Moon Pie. Maybe a bag of grits.

And, oh yeah, GO PANTHERS!

 

Here’s the list of suggested items. Keep in mind, you can donate items that are not on this list as well:

Canned Meats
Chicken, turkey, ham, beef stew

Canned Fish
Tuna, mackerel, salmon

Canned Vegetables
Beans, corn, potatoes

Canned Fruits
Pears, apples, peaches

Other Items
Peanut butter, pasta, rice, deluxe macaroni & cheese, soup

Non-Food Items
Laundry and dish detergent, shampoo, deodorant, toilet paper, diapers
