The ducks are back. For the third straight year, American Tobacco is taking a quack at hunger.
Thousands of rubber ducks will take to the waters of the “Old Bull River” located on the American Tobacco Campus in downtown Durham, Saturday, September 27th as the third annual Great American Tobacco Duck Race takes place with proceeds benefiting the Inter-Faith Food Shuttle.
81,000 children are going hungry at any given time in the Triangle. That means one in five children may not get breakfast before they come to school, nor have dinner when they arrive home. Through the purchase of Race Ducks, The American Tobacco Duck Race raises money to fund unique Inter-Faith Food Shuttle programs that feed thousands of hungry families everyday– in partnership with every major soup kitchen, shelter and pantry in the Triangle.
