|Description:||The Consumer Outreach Committee has partnered with The Food Bank of Central & Eastern NC, to support the Back Pack Pals Program. The Program “meets the nutritional needs of children at risk of hunger during the weekends.” The backpacks are assembled by volunteers and delivered the various school partners, to be sent home with students on Friday. When the program began, in 2005 , it served 30 children. Today, the program supports the nutritional needs of over 4100 children every week. Helping these kids, to not go hungry over the weekend, has resulted in better school attendance, behavior, and test scores, as reported by teachers and schools.|
MCRAR has committed to volunteer stuffing backpacks one Thursday per month, for the year. Each month we will need 3-5 volunteers, who are willing to give 2 hours of their time, to make a difference in thousands of children’s lives. We are on a rolling calendar for the 2nd Thursday of Each Month 9:00- 11:00am, at the Moore County Food Bank. The address is 195 Sandy Ave. Southern Pines, NC, and the phone number is 910-692-5959. Please log in and select a date, that you’d like to volunteer. There is also a Liability Waiver that will need to be signed, and closed toed shoes are a requirement. Thank you for your support of this amazing program. Register today to be a hunger hero.
The Waiver can be found in AMS under resources, Documents.
Remaining Date for the Year:
June 7th (last day before summer break)
