It was the first time an evening distribution has been offered. About 40 people stopped by to collect the donated food, according to Executive Director Lili Coleman. “That’s a pretty good turnout,” she said. “We usually have anywhere between 50 and 150 people during the day.”
At least three people wearing work uniforms came to the food and clothing pantry for help on Wednesday, volunteers said. Second Helpings made a special delivery to Bluffton Self Help and if another one is offered, Coleman said they’ll host another evening distribution. If not, the team might wait until the nonprofit moves to 39 Sheridan Circle in Sheridan Park in October. A closing on the new location is expected this week, Coleman said.
