American Tobacco Campus Holds “Replenish the Pantry” Food Drive for Durham Rescue Mission

Sergio from General Building Maintenance at ATC delivers collected food to the truck for delivery to the Durham Rescue Mission.

Recently, the Durham Rescue Mission’s food pantry caught fire destroying most of its supply of canned and boxed food.   Being in urgent need of food donations, American Tobacco Campus sponsored a week long “Replenish the Pantry” Food Drive.  Collection barrels were placed in several American Tobacco Campus lobbies including Crowe, Strickland, the Durham Bulls and FOX 50.   

A truck load of food donations was collected from tenants and taken to this Rescue Mission and included non-perishable food items such as canned vegetables, soups and meats, jars of peanut butter and jelly, packages of grits, oatmeal, noodles, rice and pancake mix.
