For this event, BBBS purchased about 500 To-go meals and 100 to 120 dinner packs with chicken. BBBS Area Director Connie Rheinecker said the organization wanted to provide the community with food, so people can have one less thing to worry about. “We are trying to reach families in the Logan Community that may be affected by COVID and provide them with meals for their family — meals that they can eat today but then give them resources to be able to make meals at home,” she said.

The meal and hygiene product distribution was just another way to connect resources. After BBBS received the CARES Act funds, they heard from Pastor Donald Anthony, who is a Big Brother, and Concord Mayor Bill Dusch who is on the Cabarrus Leadership Council.

Dusch made the suggestion to hold a community wide event, and Anthony was able to connect BBBS with families in need within the Logan community.
