Saturday, May 11th marks the 21st anniversary of one of America’s great days of giving — the National Association of Letter Carriers “Stamp Out Hunger” Food Drive. Residents are urged to leave a bag of non-perishable foods next to their mailbox this Saturday, and the local letter carriers will pick it up. All the food collected on Hilton Head will then go to Deep Well and Second Helpings, for distribution to the hungry, which is part of those organizations’ ongoing efforts. In Savannah, donations go to Second Harvest.
The need for donation is great this year, too. And the timing is perfect, because it’s a time of year when local food pantries start to run bare. Yet heading into summer is a time when many school breakfast and lunch programs are no longer available for children, placing an even greater burden on households with children. Of course, there are also thousands of seniors who deal with hunger year round.
Champions Tour officials with the Liberty Mutual Insurance Legends of Golf have released details on the free community concert to be held at the Westin’s Club at Savannah Harbor driving range on Hutchinson Island next Friday, April 26. The tournament’s “Concert on the Range” will be free of charge and open to the public courtesy of Liberty Mutual Insurance and will feature award-winning country music artists Lonestar and Jo Dee Messina. Savannah native Chuck Courtenay will perform as the concert’s opening act.
As a welcome to concertgoers, the Liberty Mutual Insurance Legends of Golf will offer free admission after 3 p.m. on Friday, so attendees can enjoy the tail end of the tournament’s first round before the music begins. The “Concert on the Range” will begin at approximately 6 p.m. on the driving range at The Club at Savannah Harbor.
