This is the biggest event of the year for The Food Drive Kids. Since it was started by William Winslow when he was 7 years old in 2013 they have collected over $40,000 and over 40,000 pounds of food to help support The Interfaith Food Shuttle’s Backpack Buddies program in Wake and surround counties. Join us again this year and help make this the biggest food drive yet. This is a rare opportunity for parents to give their kids an opportunity to volunteer for a cause that helps their peers, and makes a huge difference, and in this case kids make a enormous difference in how much food is collected. Don’t miss this chance to work together with your family to help fight childhood hunger!
This year’s food drive is dedicated to late Mrs. Rebecca (Becky) Knotts Thomas. Mrs. Thomas was the mother of our beloved AB Combs Principal, Ms. Muriel Summers. Mrs. Thomas was an active community leader and a long-standing member of the Business and Professional Women’s Federation. Her life was eventful and accomplished; but none of those events or endeavors truly defined her…she is better remembered, and loved, by the ways in which she navigated life’s journey. Her faith was at the center of her very being; and that deep and personal relationship to God was her compass, her true “north”. She was a loyal friend who loved travel, a good time, a good meal, a good laugh and more than her fair share of mischief. Causes important to her included serving underserved children, the lonely elderly, and the hungry. It is with great honor that we dedicate this year’s food drive to Mrs. Thomas. All donations of food and money will be made in her memory, as a way to honor her and her compassion for those in need.
