WFDD's 2013 BackPack Campaign

WFDD's 2013 BackPack Campaign

5:00am Nov 26, 2013

In North Carolina, 1 in 4 children is at risk for hunger.

Again this holiday season you have a chance to support 88.5 WFDD and The Second Harvest Food Bank with one donation. For a limited time, when you support WFDD with a pledge in any amount, Ralph Lauren will donate a backpack full of food to The BackPack Program of the Second Harvest Food Bank, providing a backpack of nutritious food for a child in need.

Thanks to our partners at Ralph Lauren, 100% of your gift to WFDD goes toward great radio in our community. Ralph Lauren has committed to providing funds for up to 800 backpacks of food!

You can learn more about how the Second Harvest Food Bank combats child hunger on their website here. Also make sure to visit the interactive map found here to learn about food insecurity in our community.

Your gift right now helps a child in need - AND supports your local public radio station, 88.5 WFDD.
Make your Back Pack pledge online here.
Any pledge received by WFDD starting on Monday 11/25 will be counted in our “BackPack Pledge” total, including gifts received by text message, online at, by mail or by phone. One backpack per donor (this is so we do not confuse our credit card system, which sometimes declines multiple charges to a card and to ensure we can provide an accurate accounting of pledges received to Ralph Lauren and The Food Bank. If you want to “trigger” more donations we encourage you to tell your friends and neighbors to give!)
