  1. Buddy Box 4000

On Saturday February 3rd our Annual Pledge Partner the Family Mentor Foundation held Part 1 of their Buddy Box 4000 event. The event brought together volunteers for an afternoon of Buddy Box packing, music, and spreading the mission of the Family Mentor Foundation, which is to meet the unmet needs of children in our community through a variety of programs and resources that will help them to reach their full potential. A Buddy Box is a box filled with kid-friendly, nutritious, nonperishable, individual sized-food items that are easy for children to eat or prepare on their own. These meals and snacks help sustain children on the weekends when they are not in school. For more information, to learn about future volunteer opportunities, or to make a donation visit their site!
