Come visit the Southern Living Showcase at Currahee Club on Fridays and Sundays from 1 PM – 6 PM and Saturdays from 10 AM – 6 PM through December 22. The home is beautiful and will be open with holidays decorations beginning Friday, December 6th. Touring the home is a treat and you will be helping local charities, Neighbors 4 Neighbors Food Pantry and Food 2 Kids in Stephens County. Please be sure to see the displays for the charities before you leave.
Neighbors 4 Neighbors is named the recipient of the 2013 Model Program of the Year by Food Bank of Northeast Georgia. This distinction was in recognition of the effort in Stephens County to help those in need of food. Our programs include a food pantry, introduction of evening hours at the pantry, quarterly mobile food pantries, and involvement with the expansion of Food 2 Kids. A beautiful handmade, one of a kind pottery platter was presented by John Becker, President of the Food Bank of Northeast Georgia. Pictured are Annie Constantinos, Lynne Smith, Pat Standard, John Becker, Dee Scarborough and Deborah Gibby.
On 11/7/2013, Neighbors 4 Neighbors sponsored a Mobile Food Pantry assisted by the Northeast Georgia Food Bank and many loyal community volunteers. We served 318 families representing 850 people. This number also represents 281 young people under 18 years of age and 166 people over 65 years of age.
Many thanks to all who help make this event a success.
