GSP teams with Harvest Hope to benefit federal employees during shutdown
Greenville-Spartanburg International Airport (GSP) is teaming up with Harvest Hope Food Bank to host a food drive to assist federal employees working on its campus during the partial government shutdown. Items will be accepted starting Thursday.

“Throughout the partial government shutdown, federal employees have worked tirelessly to keep operations at GSP running smoothly,” said Dave Edwards, GSP’s president and CEO. “The food drive is one small way we can show our appreciation for their hard work and dedication.”

Items collected during the food drive will be donated to Harvest Hope Food Bank.

Harvest Hope will set-up a weekly mobile pantry at GSP for federal employees through the duration of the shutdown. Passengers wishing to donate can drop off items at GSP’s customer service desk, located near baggage claim, in the terminal lobby.

Community members can drop off donations curbside at valet parking.

Donations will be accepted Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. until the end of the shutdown.

Accepted items include non-perishable food, household supplies, paper products, diapers and baby wipes. Monetary donations will not be accepted.
