Cram the Cruiser to Prevent Hunger this Christmas

About the Program
This free event is open to the community and we ask participants to bring individual sized servings for the Parker Task Force's Backpack Program. This initiative focuses on providing kids in need with food for the weekend. Each Friday, the qualifying child picks up a backpack with food items to provide them nourishment so they are able to focus on their studies instead of their hunger.

For more information on the Parker Task Force, visit their website.
