BackPack Beginnings is lucky to have so many wonderful organizations behind us.  One such organization is maCares (a charitable giving division of Market America).

maCares is hosting a food drive on Saturday, June 6th from 11 – 2 at the conveniently located Friendly Center Harris Teeter (3330 West Friendly Avenue, Greensboro, NC 27410) that will benefit the food pantries at BPB.

Their blog post about the food drive serves as an excellent reminder of the children in need right here in our community:
