February Northland Night at Harvesters packs a record amount of BackSnacks!
Congratulations to the 50 individuals from several civic and work groups who gathered for our monthly Northland Night at Harvesters to pack BackSnacks. 2,580 northland children receive a BackSnack each Friday and our coordinated efforts once a month help ensure delivery to those 59 elementary schools who participate. A record 2,025 BackSnacks were packed in just under two hours, nearly 200 more than the average packing effort! Thanks for the wonderful and enthusiastic help. If you’d like to join, there are still openings for our March 17 night. Contact Chris by calling 816-301-4483 or via email at [email protected] to reserve your spot.
