The Boys & Girls Club of the Sandhills recently received a grant to help address child hunger in Moore County. The $2,000 grant from the Joy in Childhood Foundation will support the Kid’s Cafe program, which provides breakfast, lunch and dinner during the summer and dinner during the school year to children in southern Moore County.
“We are proud to be a part of the Joy in Childhood Foundation’s mission to provide joy to hungry kids by providing the resources they need in their daily lives,” said Fallon Brewington, Chief Executive Officer at the Boys & Girls Club of the Sandhills. “This grant will enable us to further our own mission and Kid’s Cafe program.”
The charitable foundation is supported by Dunkin’ and Baskin-Robbins.
“As a local resident, I am thankful to our Joy in Childhood Foundation for supporting local organizations such as the Boys & Girls Club of the Sandhills that share our commitment to bringing joy to hungry kids and to help them live healthier lives, so that they can reach their full potential,” said Ken Baer, local Dunkin’ franchisee.
Over the years, the Joy in Childhood Foundation has helped feed Moore County children by awarding $25,000 to the Boys & Girls Club of the Sandhills.
