The Carolina Panthers will hold their annual Holiday Food Drive to benefit the Salvation Army's Christmas Bureau when they play the Atlanta Falcons at Bank of America Stadium on Sunday, Nov. 15 at 1 p.m.
Fans are encouraged to bring "one can per fan" or other non-perishable food item with them to the game. Volunteers from the Salvation Army will be at each entrance with collection barrels when the gates open at 11 a.m.
"With the help of Panthers fans, our goal is to raise more than 10 tons of food to feed hungry families in Greater Charlotte. It is no surprise that the need is greater than ever this year. Panthers fans have always been generous in answering the call to assist those in need in our community," said Riley Fields, the Carolina Panthers director of community relations.
For fans who forget their food donations, the Salvation Army will also have red kettles set-up for those wishing to make monetary gifts. All food and money collected at the game will be used by the Salvation Army to serve more than 20,000 people in Greater Charlotte this holiday season.
