    Updated food drive dates have been posted. Not sure how we got a release from 2004 but the drive starts October 26th.

    They sent it to WRAL and probably just used the same info from the 2004 marketing. I am confirming and will update asap. Thanks!

    Is it just me, or does it say "When: Sunday, October 3 through Friday, November 26, 2004."
    Are these the correct dates? I went on HT's website for press releases and I didn't see this one.

    kjohnson, you know they will :)

    Thanks Nancy!! I have lots of free soap and bodywash that I am sure the troops would love!

    kjohnson, I believe it's meant for food to provide during the holidays for those in need.

    BUT, SECU bank (State Employee Credit Union) locations are accepting donations of such items through October 31st to send to our troops!

    Would that include HBA products or only food items? I have some bath items that I need to donate bc they irritated my husband's extremely sensitive skin.

    I'd love to see HT keep bins in their stores year round....can you imagine the bargains we could fill them up with! I see the food bank truck at my HT on a very regular basis picking up the perishable foods from the bakery, produce and deli, I'm sure they'd gladly empty a bin of non-perishables in the front of the store if it were there.

    Yes!!! I've been waiting for this! Thanks Faye! Heck, even running into a HT yesterday I missed the container, never saw it! I need to slow down and take in my surroundings better :)
