Annunciation food drive aims to Fill the Bus

First Citizens Bank in Havelock is also serving as a dropoff site for food donations.

“We want to collect so much that the bus gets a flat tire,” she said.

Rodney said the plan is to drive the bus with the food to the pantry on Monday, right before Thanksgiving.

Rodney said the food pantry desperately needs food that it supplies to the needy, especially during the holidays.

“I had heard that they didn’t have any food,” she said. “We thought about doing something with Toys for Tots for the holidays, but then we thought why not use the bus and fill it with food.”

Rodney said the Fill the Bus Food Drive isn’t just about Annunciation and wants it to be something the entire city can get behind.

“We’re challenging the Havelock community,” she said. “I hope people will do it.”
