HUNTINGTON - Stacking Thread and Breaking Bread, a community clothing and food drive, is set to run 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. Friday, Oct. 20, at the A.D. Lewis Community Center in Huntington.

Sponsored by Dakota Nelson with the help and support of Gro Huntington, the event will include live music by The Dividends as well as a buffet-style dinner.

Donations of at least $5 per person will be taken at the door for each adult eating. Kids are free.

Funds raised will go toward Djembe drums and similar instruments so the A.D. Lewis Community Center can offer a time and place for kids to get together for drum circles every other Friday evening. Some of the food donated will go to providing good food for the children who participate.

The effort is collecting nonperishable food at two drop-off spots: The Wild Ramp at 555 14th St. West as well as Huntington Cycle & Sport, 1010 10th St., Huntington. Folks can also call Nelson at 843-707-3453 for donation pickups. You can also bring goods and winter clothing the night of the event.

The event will feature a Yummy in the Tummy dessert competition. The yummiest dessert will earn someone $150. There will be gift prizes for second and third place as well.
