BackPack Buddies Outreach
October 20, 2010
Hey Ladies! On behalf of Matt and myself, I wanted to say THANK YOU for joining us in our partnership with Inter-Faith Food Shuttle at our October 10 Project C3 Chicks! Not only did you give, but you gave abundantly!
As a result of our Project C3 Chicks collection, plus partnership from several Connect Groups, we collected 514 pounds of food for the BackPack Buddies program! The items we collected included…
76 Meat Items
371 Fruit Items
30 Vegetable Items
25 Noodle Items
26 Breakfast Items
78 Snack Items
The BackPack Buddies Program provides children from food-insecure homes with weekend meals during the school year. The children receive a backpack containing six balanced meals and two healthy snacks at the end of every week. There is currently one elementary school in Johnston County that is using the BackPack Buddies program.
Thank you to Inter-Faith Shuttle for partnering with us and than you ladies, for reaching out to our community!
