GIVE BACK! FILL A BACKPACK!
Warm a child's tummy by donating Soup-to-Go to North Carolina Symphony's concert The Snowman on the day before Thanksgiving and to Holiday Pops performances on Thanksgiving weekend for Inter-Faith Food Shuttle's BackPack Buddies program. The program takes the food that you provide to fill a backpack with a weekend’s worth of healthy meals for local schoolchildren in need.
You can also drop off items at Symphony State Headquarters, 3700 Glenwood Avenue, Suite 130, in Raleigh. You will receive a $20 voucher towards a pair of tickets for a concert of your choice in February and March 2015.*
There are 116,000 children in the greater Triangle going hungry. YOUR donation of soup can help fill those tummies this winter.
