Food Roundup Rescheduled for September
Supplies are running low.
The Food Roundup, which normally takes place in April, had to be postponed because of COVID-19. During this challenging time, we have remained open when others have not. The needs of abused, neglected and abandoned children don’t cease even in this time of crisis, and our cottage parents and staff have served in incredible ways to ensure our boys and girls have safe, caring homes.
In cooperation with churches and associations throughout the state, this year's food drive is taking place in September.
Our shelves are looking bare because of the postponement. We need your help collecting non-perishable food, supplies and gift cards more than ever!
How Does the Food Roundup Help?
When churches, businesses and other community friends unite for the annual Food Roundup, it feeds hundreds and hundreds of boys and girls living at Baptist Children's Homes. When you are feeding BCH cottages across North Carolina that can have as many as a dozen children, it takes a lot of food to fill hungry bellies.
When Do We Collect and How Do We Deliver our Donations?
Promote and collect throughout the month of September. You can deliver your collections at designated statewide pick-up points (LIST OF PICK-UP POINTS COMING SOON). BCH will begin picking up donations from collection points in late September. You will need to find out the last day your collection point will accept food deliveries prior to the starting date.
