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 MORNING
7 AM UNTIL NOON

Beginning June 9 
and running through September 8 (we have added a week 'at both ends' of our previous season...)
WHERE ​IS IT ?
WE ARE MOVING!
to  the
BEACH MART parking lot!
Beginning June 9
you will see our rig set up at the south end of the lot - just off Holden Beach Rd.  This will provide easy access to the folks leaving Holden Beach from BOTH ENDS of the island!

Our thanks to Lyn Holden for providing new this location!
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 pantry.

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!  2017 was another GREAT year!​​ 
By posting a Friday reminder on the Facebook page "Friends of Holden Beach", interest and support increased!  We have begun counting pounds separate from cash donations rather than using the old metric of $1 = 5 lbs.  We took in 12, 845 lbs and $1,804.  Our food collections now total over 213,000 pounds since this cause 
began in July 2005.

Bill Spier, shown below, is the founder of A Second Helping.  Bill retired at 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.
​Coming soon ...

To our valued rental company and merchant partners AND individuals who rent their Holden Beach properties, here is a link to the latest "Info Sheet" on A Second Helping... it basically captures all of the info from our website in a single page, printable .pdf.  Thank you for your interest and support of Second Helping!
