News and Awards Sep 17, 2019
Holly Springs, N.C. (September 2019) – The Town of Holly Springs, North Carolina tops many lists as one of the best and safest places to live. But with the rising cost of living, more and more families are struggling to survive and put dinner on the table.
That’s why this Thursday, September 19, the community will band together for a crusade called Feed Holly Springs’ Hungry. Local businesses, led by 919 Marketing, participated in a food drive to collect 919 items of food. The donations will go to the Holly Springs Food Cupboard, a small non-profit located in a quaint cottage in the center of town where families line up each Thursday for their meals.
919 Marketing, a national content marketing agency based in Holly Springs, is presenting Feed Holly Springs’ Hungry on the special day of September 19 or 9/19 — a day that comes around only once in a century. Volunteers will design the food donations in the shape of a giant “919” formation in the parking lot to raise awareness of the local hunger problem.
Representatives of the Holly Springs Food Cupboard, participating business owners, and members of the public are invited to attend a presentation ceremony at noon on Thursday, September 19, at 919 Marketing.
“The Holly Springs Food Cupboard is a wonderful, and necessary, resource for hundreds of families in our community,” says 919 Marketing CEO and Founder David Chapman. “We want to use our expertise in content marketing and public relations to raise awareness about the Holly Springs Food Cupboard, and to assist the organization in its efforts to help our neighbors.”
“We are so grateful for 919 Marketing’s outreach and for the generosity of our Holly Springs community,” says Holly Springs Food Cupboard Executive Director Pat Haggard. “Together we provide food to families in need of assistance. I only wish that all of you could experience first-hand the smiles and sincere thanks of the families we serve.”
The Holly Springs Food Cupboard began with a food distribution at Holly Springs United Methodist Church in 2010. In 2018, the food cupboard helped more than 400 families.
