November is a time for us to reflect upon our blessings and give thanks for a bountiful year. Most of us will come together with friends and family, and indulge in an abundance of food. We enjoy all that our hearts and stomachs desire.
Unfortunately, this is not the reality for thousands of children here in Wake County. Miller Monroe is teaming up with Grow Our Kids to provide healthy food and snack items to underprivileged children in Wake County. Grow Our Kids is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization that collects non-perishable food items and distributes them to children and their families during “track out” periods. Many children rely on the meals provided to them during the normal school session and, sadly, go without proper nutrition during the weeks that they are “tracked out.”
Please stop by Miller Monroe, located at 3321 Trillium Whorl Court, Raleigh, NC, Monday through Friday, 9:00 a.m. through 4 p.m., between November 7 and December 22, 2016 to drop off food items for those in need. You can learn more about the types of donations needed by visiting www.growourkids.org. Or, if it is more convenient, we will be happy to collect and deliver monetary donations to Grow Our Kids.
Let’s do our part to help our neighbors this holiday season! Together we can have a meaningful impact on the children of Wake County.
