A “Back to School Bash” benefitting the Backpack Buddies program run by the Kiawah Women’s Foundation will be held on Friday, August 30 from 5 p.m. – 9 p.m. during the Freshfields “Music on the Green” summer event.
Home Team BBQ will be there offering delicious food and 48 Wine Bar will have wine and beer available for purchase. There will also be a silent auction/raffle.
The Backpack Buddies program provides food to over 360 “at-risk” of hunger children on Johns and Wadmalaw Islands. Every Friday, these children receive packs of healthy, shelf stable food to take home to sustain them over the weekend.
Hunger lives 5 miles away. Hungry children cannot learn. This program helps the children come to school alert, secure, confident and ready to learn.
