Last month we told you the story of a group of churches in Moore County that come together every year to prepare Thanksgiving meals for kids and their families who receive weekend meals through the BackPack Pals Program at our Sandhills Branch. We told you that this year they expected to provide 900 meals to food insecure families. Well, we are thrilled to announce that they exceeded their goal and provided warm Thanksgiving meals to over 1,000 families in need!
This is a tremendous effort by a small group of dedicated volunteers, and we are so grateful to be a part of it. Many thanks to these individuals for making Thanksgiving both plentiful and memorable for over 1,000 local families in Moore County!
These churches like many of our partner agencies work hard to provide holiday meals to food insecure families. We thank them for their service and wish everyone a pleasant holiday season shared with friends and family. If you’d like to help make a difference this holiday season, give to our Holiday Meals Drive to help ensure our partner agencies have stocked shelves and warm meals for local families.
