Harvest Hope Food Bank

Harvest Hope Food Bank’s mission is to provide for the needs of hungry people by gathering and sharing quality food with dignity, compassion, and education. It was founded in 1981 by a group of concerned, community-minded citizens and church-related individuals who became compellingly aware of the hunger needs in our community.

Today, Harvest Hope Food Bank helps throughout the Midlands and the Upstate, and it is a proud member of Feeding America, which is the nation’s leading domestic hunger-relief charity. In South Carolina, 1 in 4 children under the age of 5 go to bed hungry, and 14% of the population is food insecure.

Harvest Hope Food Bank works with over 500 partner agencies to help alleviate hunger in urban and rural areas of South Carolina. These partner agencies include food pantries, soup kitchens, emergency shelters, and more. In 2015, Harvest Hope distributed almost 25.6 million pounds of food and served over 2 million individuals.

Cantey Foundation Specialists works with Harvest Hope Food Bank throughout the year from volunteering to monetary donations. We are proud to work side by side with this great non-profit organization. To learn more about Harvest Hope Food Bank, please visit

U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program

The mission of the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program is to collect new, unwrapped toys during October, November, and December each year, and distribute those toys as Christmas gifts to less fortunate children in the community in which the campaign is conducted. The primary goal of Toys for Tots is to deliver, through a new toy at Christmas, a message of hope to less fortunate youngsters that will assist them in becoming responsible, productive, patriotic citizens.

Cantey Foundation Specialists works closely with Toys for Tots in Kershaw County through monetary donations, gift donations, and by acting as a donation center for 3 months out of the year. To learn more about the Toys for Tots program, please visit
