ATLANTA – August 23, 2017
This week the Synovus Northwest Georgia Division kicked off a six-week community outreach project to benefit the Action Ministries’ SuperPack program. For the second year, they hope to meet a goal of raising $10,000. Last year, they successfully raised $10,167, which equals 12,198 meals. The SuperPack program ensures that thousands of children in Georgia are fed each weekend, when they don’t have access to school lunch programs.
Unlike other feeding programs, Action Ministries SuperPack program takes food to children at partnering schools, packed in bags that can discreetly fit into their backpacks. Each SuperPack offers enough food that children can easily assemble into six meals over the weekend. Through its collective buying power, Action Ministries is able to purchase much more food than an individual or group could buy with the same amount of money. A contribution of just $5 provides food for one child for an entire weekend, and all monies raised go back into the community in which the donations were received.
