Thanks to everyone that made William’s Weekend for Backpack Buddies such a success. We had 59 people volunteer over 500 hours to staff the four stores, collect food at the restaurant, and help with getting the food where it needed to be. Because of your help we were able to collect over 3300 pounds of food and over $3000 in donations to support the Interfaith Food Shuttle’s Backpack Buddies program serving Wake and surrounding counties. This is enough to feed 16 kids for an entire school year!!
Next year we hope to make it even bigger! We are going to need even more help to make it happen, so please keep your eye out for the dates.
Together we can keep kids from being hungry.
