Urban Ministries would like to thank the 17 participating Wake County Chick-fil-A locations for allowing Christmas in July to be such a huge success! A special thank you goes to Systel Systems for providing us with trucks and lifts to deliver our food drive back to Urban Ministries’ food pantry, in addition to providing promotional flyers for Christmas in July. Thank you to the many volunteers who dedicated their time to helping fight summer hunger.
Because of your efforts, together we collected 5,453.72 pounds of food and $2,165.97 (enough to buy another 8,664 pounds of food!)
Your donations go to families who live at or below the federal poverty level living in crisis. Summer often brings hardship to many families whose children are out of school that normally would receive free or reduced breakfast and/or lunch.
