BAGS for Better Days Food Pantry
Over the 2016 Thanksgiving and Christmas Holiday, the BAGS Foundation and TJ Warren Foundation executed their 1st joint sponsored charitable event. Feeding Families 1st attempted to give back to people and communities. It was done! 640 Turkeys and canned goods were given to Hurricane Matthew survivors, United States Veterans and families throughout North Carolina. The program was executed in Wake County, Durham County, Cumberland County and Beaufort County. With the help of partners like SAM’S Club, Foodlion and many dedicated caring individuals we impacted and fed over 600 families (estimated 2,240 people).
