Vidant hopes drive will collect 1,000 pounds of food before Thanksgiving

GREENVILLE, N.C. (WNCT) - Thanksgiving is right around the corner and the folks at Vidant Wellness Center want to make sure no one goes hungry.

They're collecting canned goods now through November 16th.

The goal is to collect 1 thousand pounds of food.

It will all be donated to the Central and Eastern North Carolina Food Bank to go to needy families this Thanksgiving.

John Briley, the supervisor of exercise programs at Vidant Wellness said, "We feel like it is important to do the food drive every year because of the fact that it goes with our mission, to improve the health and wellbeing of Eastern North Carolina."

If you donate at least 10 items, you will get 10 percent off a personal training session at the center.

To drop off items, take them to Vidant Wellness Center at 2610 Stantonsburg, Rd, Greenville
