With a new school year just around the corner, we're gearing up to make sure children on free or reduced lunch programs have access to wholesome meals on the weekend with the BackPack Buddies program. We couldn't do it without partners like our good friends from MIX 101.5 WRAL-FM! Each year, they hold a food drive to bring in meals and money to support BackPack Buddies. Read on for more details on this year's exciting event!
MIX 101.5 BackPack Buddies Food Drive
Thursday, August 19th
MIX personalities will be on location at Crabtree Valley Mall (in front of Macy's) and Cary Crossroads Plaza in Cary (in front of the Old Navy) encouraging listeners to donate food, new backpacks and monetary contributions. Come out on Thursday and donate money or food to make a difference in a child's life!
Last year, the community brought in $27,000 and over 10,000 pounds of food through the MIX 101.5 BackPack Buddies Food Drive to fight childhood hunger!!
