Alta Prosperity Village Holds a Shark Week Food Drive

November 9, 2018 | 8:00am

Shark Week is one of the most popular events in America and each year the celebrations get more and more creative! For this year's  Shark Week, Alta Prosperity Village, a member of our Multi-Family Program in Charlotte, NC, decided to get in the spirit and get involved by hosting their Shark Week-themed food drive!

From July 20-29, the staff and residents collected canned tuna and other non-perishable items to help fight hunger in their community. Why tuna? Because sharks love it and, more importantly, because it's one of the most highly-requested items by food banks.

We have to give a shoutout to Hilldrup of Charlotte, as well, for providing boxes which made it easier to collect the donations. Shark week food drives can be a popular and effective way to fight hunger and Alta Prosperity Village more than rose to the challenge!

Thank you to the staff and residents, and to the crew at Hilldrup, for fighting hunger in North Carolina!
