The Second Annual Pack-a-Thon Provides More than 140,000 Meals to our Hungry Neighbors

July 29, 2013 By: Sara Blair Category: WordPress Import

On Saturday, July 20, more than 250 individuals joined us at our second annual Pack-a-Thon! By the time the last shift ended, 74,043 pounds of food was packed and nearly $22,000 was raised—allowing us to provide more than 140,000 meals!

It was inspiring to see the community come together not only for the food, prizes and celebrity guests, but also to reach out and help those in need in our community. Thank you to all who participated or made a financial contribution! We’d also like to thank our sponsor, UnitedHealthcare, and in-kind partners, Tiki Tim’s, Old Dutch, 7UP Bottling Company, and Best Maid Cookie Company!
