Champions for KidsPosted: May 30, 2012
For all you followers who live in the Triangle I want to invite you to the Streets at Southpoint this Saturday for the Food Bank of CENC’s Champions for Kids day.
Summer is a particularly hard time for kids who are at risk for hunger. 51% of all kids in public schools in our 34 county service area get free or reduced price lunches at school. That is over 300,000 kids.
In order to help feed them during the summer the Food Bank works with agencies to set up summer feeding programs and helps make more food available to families.
If you come out to the mall think about bringing food to donate that you can spare, of course money is always welcome. There is a Kids Feeding Kids walk in the Mall from 8:30- 10:00. A Food Bank truck will be parked on the road that passes between Magiannos and Firebirds between 10:00 AM and 6:00 PM so you can just drive by and pass your donations out the window.
If you are up at 9:00 watching Saturday morning cartoons on ABC-11 I will be live on TV. So if you can’t come to the mall you can see me on TV.
I know that so many of you have made generous pledges to the Food Bank through the Less Dana, More Good Campaign, and thank you for that. It takes many events and messages to educate the public on the problem of hunger and help get the support we need to help our neighbors.
