Queen’s Grant Community School held its annual Thanksgiving Turkey Dinner Drive the week of November 14.  The students brought in enough Thanksgiving food supplies to fill 130 dinner bags and raised $1,128 “Gobble, Gobble” dollars to buy Food Lion Gift Cards to go with each bag.  QG partnered with Food Lion to purchase 108 “Hunger has a Cure” food boxes with $250 of the raised funds to go to Mint Hill’s Loaves and Fishes and other local churches.  The dinner bags went to families, schools and churches in our community.
