GIVE BACK! FILL A BACKPACK!
Bring food items to North Carolina Symphony Holiday Pops concerts on Thanksgiving weekend to donate to the Inter-Faith Food Shuttle 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 January 2014.*
Our goal this year is collecting 2,000 pounds of food, and that would be music to our ears.
*Some restrictions apply
