It's day 2 of Camp Out Hunger, and we are officially on a roll to have 2 26 ft Uhaul trucks filled by Saturday, November 6th.

What is Camp Out Hunger?

Well, you see, Camp Out Hunger is our annual food drive where we camp out around the clock at Sam's Club parking lot in Augusta collecting donations of all sorts, things like nonperishable foods, money, pet foods, and even personal care items.

Why are we filling to HUGE Uhauls?

Together as a community, we have made it very clear that when one of our own is in need, we rally around and make it happen. In previous years we used smaller trucks, but the need is bigger than ever, and we need your help filling these HUGE trucks!

In the years leading up to the pandemic, Augusta was seeing a massive revitalization. It seemed like every few weeks, we were hearing about a new restaurant, store, or other business. That process did continue, at a slower pace, during the pandemic. Now that things are getting back to normal, we want to know what you'd like to see in these spaces. Take a look and then message us through Facebook or our app.
