This year, Downtown Southport, Inc. (DSI, Inc.) is sponsoring the “Fill the Food Pantry” initiative during the 2019 Southport Summer Market.
Market customers are asked to drop off canned foods, boxed foods, diapers, and baby wipes to the designated collection box located near the stage area in Franklin Square Park. Donations will be taken to the Oak Island Southport Interchurch Fellowship Food Pantry each week. More than 24,000 individuals receive assistance during the year.
