We hope you will consider a unique opportunity to showcase your service club/company/congregation as a way to raise funds for Backpack Program. We invite you to decorate a backpack or bag any way you would like to demonstrate your trade, honor a loved one, or showcase your company in the 1st Annual “Backpack Bash. Come express your creativity, the sky is the limit!
All decorated backpacks will be on display at the Hickory Museum of Art September 3-5th and a Backpack Bash Social & Awards Banquet will take place Thursday September 5th from 6-8pm for which tickets will be sold. Throughout the week patrons of the Museum will have the opportunity to vote for their favorite backpack and a panel of judges will award an array of unique titles the evening of the Awards Banquet.
The Backpack Program, a program of The Corner Table Soup Kitchen, is seeking to end childhood hunger in Catawba County by providing 1,300 children in 34 local schools with a bag full of food each weekend throughout the school year. Providing food to families insures that a child can come to school ready to learn, removing hunger as a barrier to a good education.
The program relies entirely on volunteers and donations from the local community for support. A donation of $130 supports a child’s participation in the program for an entire school year.
Please consider making a donation and joining us for this fantastic event. I will follow up with you in the upcoming weeks. Together I believe we can end childhood hunger in Catawba County!
Backpacks will be on display for the public September 3-5th from 10AM-5PM.
