Project Boon Organizes Backpack Event and Grocery Distribution with the Help of Local Partners
By: Project Boon
This annual Project Boon event will look slightly different from past backpack events due to current guidelines from the county on the size of gatherings. Despite the current climate, Project Boon has remained committed to serving the underserved community. The organization is becoming familiar with drive-thru events to serve the community, after hosting two grocery distributions through the drive-thru at The Hitch Burger.
Brooke Hill, a Project Boon volunteer, shared her experience at one of the events.
"Getting to be a part of the Project Boon grocery distribution event was a joy. Having the option to use the drive-thru helped make the event run very smooth and efficient for everyone involved. I appreciated that we were able to keep socially distant throughout the entire event, but didn't lose out on making connections with the people there. My favorite part was getting to see everyone's faces light up and how appreciative they were of the donations. I've been looking forward to the next event since."
If your family is in need of back-to-school items, please join us at The Hitch Burger Grill on July 26. The event is first-come, first-serve, and we do ask that attendees do not line up early. Each family can receive one bag of groceries, and each child will be given one filled backpack, with a maximum of two per car.
If you would like to support the efforts, please visit the Project Boon website at www.projectboon.org for more information on how to donate and locations where you can drop off any school supplies.
