15th Annual Castle of Cans Food Drive
The 15th Annual Castle of Cans Food Drive will accept canned goods during the event or the canned food may be dropped off at Taste Full Beans Coffeehouse on Second Street before the event. Last year, more than 16,000 pounds of food was distributed to eight Catawba County agencies to feed the hungry. The late Susan L. Coleman championed the food drive for many years. In Susan’s honor, the goal of festival coordinators is to make 2013 the most successful drive ever. - See More Here
In memory of Susan, who was our Chief of Communications at the SIC for the past 20 or more years, I am asking each of you attending to help make the drive the biggest in history. Please bring a bag or two filled with can goods. If you can’t bring canned food, then make a cash donation.
I will personally on behalf of all you in SCCA deliver the food to the Octobertfest in Hickory. Please help to fill my motorhome with food for the Castle of Cans Food Drive. This meant a lot to Susan and Susan meant a lot to all of us.
Please bring your donations to the lunch area at the SIC on Sunday morning during the quiet hour. We will make announcements at the track to remind everyone. Susan gave a lot to all of us over the past 40 years and now is a chance for each of us to give in her memory.
