The P. O.W.E.R. of Play Foundation is supporting our partner BackPack Beginnings to feed local children during these school closures. BackPack Beginnings has committed to giving 2,100 food bags each week of the NC school closures. This is going to require a fast turn around because these bags need to be packed and delivered each week.
Here’s how you can help:
1. Sign up to volunteer. If shifts are full please keep checking back to see if we have opened up more spots or had cancellations.
2. Be a delivery driver to the feeding sites. At this time the sites have not yet been finalized by the school district. When we have all of the details we will send out an email to everyone.
3. Donate. Please drop off food or monetary donations at PROEHLIFIC PARK and we will deliver them to BackPack Beginnings. Donate at our Fitness Center Entrance anytime during our operating hours 5am-7pm.
Items that are ready to eat or can be prepped via microwave, as we want to make sure we are offering food items for all types of families, such as those living in cars, motels, hotels, etc. Examples include microwavable rice bags, healthy snacks, healthy cereals, microwavable oatmeal, just add water mac and cheese, pop-top cans of fruit, Chef Boyardee pop-top meals, ready to eat tuna kits, Campbells microwavable soup bowls, etc.
