(CHARLESTON, S.C.) – November 26, 2012 – Young & Free South Carolina, powered by South Carolina Federal Credit Union, partnered with the Lowcountry Food Bank Student Food Drive, helping students from seven high schools collect 23,732 pounds of food.


The winning schools, Ashley Ridge High School, collecting seven pounds of food per student, and Academic Magnet High School, collecting six pounds of food per student, each received a $1,000 cash prize from Young & Free SC.
