October 19, 2013 

Riverpointe group collects for CAAC

At the end of September, the Riverpointe Women’s Club sponsored a food drive for the Clover Area Assistance Center.

“This generous neighborhood really supported the charity collection,” said Bev Thompson, president of the 55-member group.

The club asked for a few cans to be donated by their Riverpointe neighbors, but instead they found many full bags. A total of 355 pounds of canned food was bagged and delivered to CAAC.
