Thanks to Everyone for making our BackPack Buddies Food Drive a Huge Success!

Wow! Thursday proved yet again why the Triangle is a great place to live!

Watch this video for a special thanks and donation totals from Jill Staton Bullard:

The response to the Mix 101.5 WRAL-FM BackPack Buddies food drive was overwhelming. Over $27,000 was donated to make sure children have access to healthy meals over the weekend.  We are still sorting and weighing all the food donations. It is a tremendous amount, over 10,000 pounds!

Thanks to everyone who took time from their day to come out to donate.  Whether you made it by the two locations or contributed online, your gift will have a powerful impact on the lives of children.

Special thanks to our friends at Mix 101.5 Wral-FM.  Their enthusiasm for feeding children is real and their dedication is unwavering.  We couldn't have done it without them.
