When you’re leaving Holden Beach after your vacation here, instead of carting home your extra food and supplies, you may donate them instead to A Second Helping. It is a local volunteer organization that collects perishable and non-perishable canned goods and other items from vacationers as they leave the island. The items are then donated to those in need in Brunswick County. A Second Helping also accepts cash and checks. You will find the volunteers collecting these goods in the Holden Beach Chapel parking lot every Saturday morning from 7:00 a.m. until noon, running through Labor Day weekend.
