August 4, 2020
BHM is proud to share wRight Choice Backpack Buddies received a donation of $1,413.00 on behalf of Centra Sota. As the uncertainty that COVID-19 has presented itself, Nutra Blend, its customers and suppliers wanted to help give back to our local communities through the “Food for Hope” campaign. This campaign was an extension of the Drive to Feed Kids program, providing opportunities for customers and suppliers alike to support local backpack and food banks during this time of unpredictability.
Funding for wRight Choice Backpack Buddies program is provided through grants from the Wright County Area United Way, and other generous donations. The program also partners with the Buffalo Food Shelf, Second Harvest Heartland, and Buffalo Cub Foods to ensure the backpacks are filled each week during the school year.
