Mark Your Calendar: MIX 101.5 Annual BackPack Buddies Food Drive Set for Saturday, August 15th

MIX 101.5 BackPack Buddies Food DriveJoin MIX 101.5 and the Inter-Faith Food Shuttle in supporting this year’s BackPack Buddies Food Drive!  MIX 101.5 will broadcast live on Saturday, August 15 from 9:00AM – 6:00PM from both Crossroads Plaza in Cary (in front of Old Navy) and Brier Creek Commons (in front of BJ Whole Sale Club)! We will be collecting healthy non-perishable food and drinks to distribute to children from food-insecure homes during the school year.

The children, selected by school principals, guidance counselors, and supervisors of various after school programs, receive a backpack containing six balanced meals and two healthy snacks at the end of every week. These are children who receive free and reduced breakfasts and lunches during the week at school, but struggle to find food over the weekend.

Without BackPack Buddies some of these children would have no food at all on Saturday and Sundays.
