June 5– CenturyLink is holding its annual CenturyLink Backpack Buddies Feed the Children Food Drive now through June 13 in hundreds of company locations across the country, including Adamsville.
As part of this effort, CenturyLink is inviting local community members to join employees in supporting the McNairy County Loaves & Fishes Food Bank.
Community members wanting to help support the drive can bring cash or food donations to CenturyLink at 116 N. Oak Street, Adamsville. If questions, call 632-3311. Checks should be made payable to McNairy County Loaves & Fishes Food Bank.
The CenturyLink Clarke M. Williams Foundation has pledged to match donations made through this drive at $1 per pound of food up to 1 million pounds nationwide, providing the opportunity to increase individual donations with the support of this match. In 2013, the CenturyLink Food Drive resulted in the equivalent of 8.54 million pounds of food being donated to more than 200 food banks across the country.
