Our goal is to raise $12,000 for this wonderful program that ensures that
needy children have food every weekend during the school year.
The Flat Rock Backpack Program began nine years ago and serves 140 children ages 2-17 years who attend schools in Henderson County. The schools identify the children who are nutritionally deprived on weekends. The program is run entirely by volunteers and is funded by grants, private donations and fundraisers like this one. Every dollar raised goes directly to purchase food for the children.The program does an amazing job with very little, helping to raise awareness about and alleviate childhood hunger in our community.
