ALL FUNDS generated by this Benefit Ride will go to the Food Bank of North Central Arkansas, to be earmarked for the Back Pack program for disadvantaged school children in the Baxter County Schools. OUR CAUSE: The Back Pack program provides food to children who don’t have enough to eat over the weekends. Kids who live in households where food is not a priority. Kids who get most of their nutritional needs met by the school breakfast and lunch programs. There are hungry children right here in Baxter County. The Back Pack program sends food home with them, to help them get thru the weekend. These kids need our help, at a time when their brains and their minds are developing, to grow into well rounded adults. Let’s all work together to make this Benefit a ride to remember!
Let’s show Baxter County what we can do! YOU can make a difference in a childs’ life. Thanks for your support, Candy Barnes 870-404-8877 for questions
