Mermaids Make A Difference At Second Harvest

Mermaids Make A Difference T-ShirtOne of our brand standards at Mermaid Cottages is our commitment to conservation and volunteer opportunities in our area.  We put on our Mermaids Make A Difference T-shirts and Mermaid hats and we dig in to help where we’re needed.  This Saturday, February 1st, is when our Mermaids make a difference at Second Harvest of Coastal Georgia.  Each month, Second Harvest volunteers pack approximately 765 boxes of food to be delivered to local senior citizens in need.  Many times, our seniors are forced to choose between refilling their prescription medications, paying utilities and buying food.

The mission of the food bank is to feed the hungry by distributing nutritious food to nonprofit agencies and at risk elderly and youth, to assist in disaster relief, and work towards long term solutions to hunger and poverty. Their statement of purpose is “Utilizing food and education to improve lives and create a Hunger-Free community”.

Second Harvest of Coastal Georgia cultivates partnerships with more than 300 agencies to distribute food to families in need throughout southeastern Georgia.  We relieve hunger among more than 147,000 people who are at-risk in our area, serving the most vulnerable populations including children, the elderly, and the disabled.
Last year, Second Harvest of Coastal Georgia secured and distributed more than 8.8 million pounds of food and grocery products. Because of the organization’s efficiency in procuring food member agencies saved more than $10 million by using the food bank for their feeding programs.”
