Apparently, these packing parties had been going on all year but this one was the first we had attended. Today's, the last one of the school year, had double the number of kid volunteers -- about 60. The result illustrated the old adage, "many hands make light work" as the kids packed 500 bags in only 45 minutes! And, everyone seemed to have a really fun time in the process.
This picture features an attempt to get a group shot of all the "pint-sized" packers right before the action got started. Also featured in this photo is the Director of the Lowcountry Food Bank who honored Jackson with an award for all his hard work with ihearthungrykids.org.
Check out their webpage for more information: ihearthungrykidsorg. In addition to packing parties, they sell t-shirts and tote bags to help support the cause and also accept direct contributions, see their support us page for more.
