Thousands of area students will be heading back to school equipped with brand new backpacks, new school supplies and plenty of snacks, thanks to MLT Outreach and McFarling Foods.
MLT Outreach (MLToutreach.org) held a Back-to-School Drive on Saturday, August 15 in the parking lot at Indianapolis Child Services, 4160 North Keystone Ave. The event was open to all area families, and provided thousands of brand new backpacks stuffed with school supplies (paper, pencils, folders, notebooks, re-usable water bottles, and more).
As part of their “Food Drop Friday” program, McFarling Foods donated the school supplies and of course, healthy and delicious snacks for all the backpacks.
“Every kid deserves a new backpack for school”, said Jason Acquisto, Marketing Manager at McFarling Foods. “We are so fortunate to partner with MLT Outreach, who organized and put on this great event.”
Other recent highlights from McFarling Foods ongoing outreach to the local community:
- Donation of several hundred food boxes for (upcoming) community food drive in partnership with Martin University and Pilgrim Chapel Missionary Baptist Church in Indianapolis
- Official sponsorship of Faith, Hope and Love Community, Inc. Charitable Golf Classic to Fight Hunger
- Continuation of the next phase (Option Period 1) of the USDA Farmers to Families Food Box program, which includes distribution of hundreds of thousands of family food boxes to local food pantries and programs.
