An anonymous donor has challenged the community to join together this Valentine's Day to support the United Way's Weekend Snackpack Program, which feeds 1,000 school-age children in need every weekend during the school year throughout Anderson County.
For every dollar raised through the "Buy A Box" Campaign, the donor will match it with another dollar up to $25,000. This means, $25,000 donated by others, turns into $50,000 to help feed our children.
Wednesday, February 14th, the United Way will host its 3rd annual "Buy A Box" Day.
What's in a box? A box, which cost $40, holds 8 Weekend Snackpacks that will feed 8 children over the weekend so that they can return to school ready to learn.
