A Second Helping

Holden Beach area summer food collection
WHAT IS IT ?
WHEN ​IS IT ?
A volunteer organization which collects canned goods, other foodstuffs, perishable and non-perishable, actually ANY leftover item from vacationers as they leave Holden Beach. These will be distributed to the needy in our area of Brunswick County through One Can Ministries / Sharon United Methodist Church.
  
ON SATURDAY MORNINGS
7 AM UNTIL NOON

Beginning June 17
and running through September 2 (Labor Day weekend)
WHERE ​IS IT ?
HOLDEN BEACH CHAPEL PARKING LOT

at the corner of Rothschild St and Ocean Boulevard

TO EXIT...if traffic is heavy, there is an easy way to get back onto Ocean Boulevard...merely exit our lot onto Brunswick and go east to Jordan Blvd, then right on Ocean, right to cross the bridge
WHAT WE CAN USE ...​​
Any food or non-food item will be accepted in its original package (we are unable to handle leftover prepared dishes).  
Non-food items are also distributed to those in need through the food bank.

We also accept CASH (or check) donations which will be used to purchase milk, eggs, chicken and other
staples in great demand through One Can Ministries.

Cash donations can be given to any volunteer or sent to the address below...
History ...
We are very grateful to our generous vacationers and residents!  2016 was our best year yet! 
By posting a Friday reminder on the Facebook page "Friends of Holden Beach", interest and support increased!  This helped us grow 21% over 2015... we took in 25,084 pounds.  Our food collections now total over 200,000 pounds since this cause began in July 2005.

Bill Spier, shown below, is the founder of A Second Helping.  He has retired as of the end of 2016.  Our volunteers, community and those who benefit from these collections continue to be blessed by his vision and thank him for his years of faithful and tireless service.
