Several businesses chose to give back to the community this year by participating in the Calhoun County Area Chamber Canned Food Drive. Businesses created a decorative holiday box and filled them up as much as they could with canned food goods. Pictures of the boxes were posted online for the public to decide which business had the best decorations.
However, the business who brought in the most canned goods won a holiday party sponsored by the Area Chamber. Tourism Director Emily Duncan says it feels good knowing businesses were competing for a great cause.
Duncan says although the competition is now closed, the chamber is still accepting canned food donations that will be delivered to several nonprofits throughout Calhoun County.
