Community Spirit Night

Chick-fil-A-logo-lgWhen: Thursday, February 27th
Time: 5:00pm to 8:00pm

Chick-fil-A would like to help extend the reach of the Fredericksburg Area Food Bank’s children feeding programs through a Community Spirit Night at 6 area locations on Thursday, February 27th. A portion of the proceeds from sales that evening will go directly to the Children’s Programs of the FAFB.

The idea is simple. Eat dinner at a participating Chick-fil-A and help feed our most at risk children. Please help us spread the word about this event by reaching out to others to attend the Spirit Night.

Addison Everett’s Birthday Food and Funds Drive

FDAddisonAddison, a kindergartener at Hugh Mercer Elementary celebrated her 6th birthday by holding a food and funds drive to feed other hungry children. She got the idea from a commercial that talked about a girl who collected shoes for a village. Ever since she saw it, she has been asking to “help people” for her birthday because “she has a lot of stuff and some people have none.”

On Monday, Addison and her mom came to the Fredericksburg Area Food Bank to donate 300 pounds of food she collected to accompany the $280 donated online by the community.  Through her birthday, Addison’s efforts will provide over 540 meals to children through the Food-4-Kidz Weekend Feeding Program.

According to Addison, we need to “tell people who will tell people who will tell more people so everyone can help.”

Happy Birthday to Addison and all of the children you are helping through your wonderful example.

Addison wants to help local kids who don’t have enough food instead of gifts for her birthday. Addison is asking everyone to make a donation to benefit children through the FAFB Food-4-Kidz Weekend Feeding Program.

Geico’s Food-4-Kidz Food Drive

Geico employees came through in a big way this week for the Fredericksburg Area Food Bank with their on-site Food-4-Kidz Weekend Feeding Program food drive. Sharon Mankin organized the event and together, the Geico employees donated 746 pounds of “kid friendly” food which equates to 597 meals provided to hungry school children to help them through weekends and holidays when free and reduced price school meals are not available.

What a great way to start the week and help create a hunger-free community. Thank you Geico employees…!
