Mike Gorski, Owner of Island Transportation is BACK ONCE AGAIN with MORE FRIENDS than ever before for the 2022 Challenge! This Challenge directly benefits two programs, the Backpack Buddies Seabrook Island and Backpack Buddies of the Kiawah Women’s Foundation. This year, Mike has set the goal with the help of his friends at $140,000 plus for this great and much-needed worthy cause.
Mike launched this project 6 years ago to help raise needed additional funds for both Backpack Buddies’ programs. Each year the Challenge has proven to be more successful than the prior year and he expects the same for this year!
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. As students have begun in-school instruction or count has rise to over 650 weekly bags to children. 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.
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.
