YES HE’S BACK AGAIN with MORE FRIENDS than ever before! He will definitely need them because this year Mike has set the goal at $100,000. All donations will be matched dollar for dollar by Mike’s “Friends”. The Challenge directly benefits Backpack Buddies Seabrook Island and the Backpack Buddies Group of Kiawah Women’s Foundation.
Mike Gorski, Owner of Island Transportation, launched this project 5 years ago to help raise funds for both Backpack Buddies’ programs.
The Covid-19 Crisis has brought unique challenges to every organization, especially to groups whose mission is to fight hunger like the Backpack Buddies Seabrook Island and the Backpack Buddies of Kiawah Women’s Foundation. Our two organizations are both 501(c) 3 nonprofits whose mission is to feed local, hungry school children. These children receive breakfast and lunch at school but are food insecure on weekends and school holidays. We are currently providing approximately 400 weekly bags to children each week. At the request, of community social workers, we are also assisting 30 of the most “at risk” of hunger households with weekly large family bags of groceries. As more students begin to go back to in-school instruction, we anticipate our weekly bag count to reach 600 plus level.
Making a donation is very easy. Just call or text Mike Gorski at 864-316-3894 and tell him your donation amount. He will provide all of the details for the different ways that you can make your donation.
Thank you in advance for your support and please don’t forget to get your donation matched dollar-for-dollar by making your donation by March 31, 2021.
