Livingstone College and the Hanford Dole chapter of the American Red Cross in Rowan County are joining forces this Friday to hold a Red Cross fundraiser.
The college and community volunteers will sell Port-a-Pitt lunches from 11 a.m. until every meal is gone.
Tickets are $8, and group deliveries can be arranged.
Call the college at 704.216.6152 for information, tickets, and to make orders.
“This is a strategic partnership today that is expected to keep the two organizations collaborating for a long time,” said Livingstone College’s President Jimmy R. Jenkins Sr.
Jenkins said he is excited about this partnership.
“We are seeking to expand our alliances with the Red Cross and other community organizations. We understand the important role that they fill and our role as a corporate citizen,” he said.
Officials at the college say this one of several events carried out to help an organization which works alongside fire and emergency first responders at the scene of a catastrophic event with welcomed relief.
