NORTH CHARLESTON (WCSC) - Boeing's annual food drive began in earnest Monday.
The event is aimed to help end hunger in South Carolina.
The Lowcountry Food Bank says last year Boeing employees donated more than 900 volunteer hours sorting and handing out food.
Boeing employees also donated more than 18,000 pounds of food last year.
Gamecock Coach Dawn Staley helped kicked off the event.
Besides taking the women Gamecocks to victory, Staley is the co-founder of Inner Sole, an organization that collects shoes for children who need them.
