Help Give Hunger the Boot and You Could Win Dinner for Two
When you come to the Snellville Fall Festival this weekend, bring some canned or boxed food with you. You’ll be helping “Give Hunger the Boot”, and you just may win dinner for two at Texas Roadhouse.
All you have to do is drop off your donations, along with a business card or piece of paper with your name and address in a “Give Hunger the Boot” collection box. If your name is drawn, you’ll win the dinner for two. But even if your name isn’t drawn, you’ll still be a winner because you’ll be helping people who literally don’t have enough to eat.
If you’d rather make a financial donation, you’re still eligible to win the dinner. Just drop off a check made payable to the Southeast Gwinnett Cooperative Ministry.
