The United Way Young Leaders service group and Publix teamed up for a series of volunteer projects this week to raise awareness about hunger and other community needs. On Wednesday, volunteers spent the afternoon sorting household items donated to the Crisis Assistance Ministry’s Free Store, which provides items at no charge to low-income people referred by other charities. The young leaders group is also participating this week in a “Hunger Challenge,” which calls for living off only $4 worth of food a day, the average amount provided to food stamp recipients in North Carolina.
