Henry and Dylan are back at it again!
Last year, we introduced you to Henry and Dylan, two local boys who have been organizing a Food & Fund Drive in their Stillwater neighborhood for the past three years. Together, the young boys walked through their neighborhood and distributed 175 bags on their neighbors’ doorsteps with a goal of collecting 500 pounds of food—which they more than doubled! In total, they collected 1,600 pounds of food for our hungry neighbors!
Well, the boys are back, along with more kids, for the fourth annual Stillwater Neighborhood Food Drive. This year five Stillwater neighborhoods—Oak Glen, Settlers Glen, Inspiration, Highlands and South Hill—will get a chance to participate and to help provide much needed meals for our neighbors in need. They’ve also created an online donation page to help boost their efforts! (You can make a gift to their drive here.)
To show everyone how easy and fun it is to organize a Food & Fund Drive, the boys sent along two YouTube videos: “Look Like Fun? ” and “Join the Effort.” Watch the boys in action in the cute and creative videos as they collect food for our hungry neighbors.
Every year, hundreds of groups hold Food & Fund Drives for Second Harvest Heartland. They range in size from a small collection at a neighborhood book club to large campaigns at companies and churches. Hosting a Food & Fund Drive is a simple and effective way to help in our fight against hunger.
Thanks again to Henry, Dylan and all the kids for their work in support of our efforts! You truly are making a difference in the lives of those in need.
