Over the life of the Secret Meals For Hungry Children program, one thing has kept it going: You. With your support, we will provide more than weekend food packs to Alabama and Northwest Florida’s neediest children; we will also provide hope.
Join us in taking the fight against hunger to the sandy beaches of the Gulf Coast. Alabama Credit Union will host the fourth annual Bids, Brews & Beats Concert and Silent Auction benefiting Secret Meals on May 4 from 11 a.m. – 3 p.m. at the Flora-Bama Lounge and Oyster Bar.
Guests at this event will enjoy live music while supporting Secret Meals by bidding on great Silent Auction items. With the help of our donors, we can guarantee that all contributions go directly to the purchase of food packs for children in our area.
In 2008, Alabama Credit Union started Secret Meals For Hungry Children with just 18 schoolchildren. Today, the Secret Meals program serves over 2,500 children across the state by quietly slipping packages of food into their backpacks every Friday throughout the school year.
Along Alabama’s Gulf Coast and Perdido Key area, we’re serving Gulf Shores Elementary, Fairhope Elementary, Foley Elementary, Swift Elementary, Florence Howard Elementary, J Larry Newton School, Collier Elementary and Warrington Elementary. A total of 295 children receive weekend food packs through Secret Meals with plans to add additional schools this coming school year.
With a fundraising goal of $34,000, we are asking for your generous donation to the Silent Auction. Any item, of any value, will directly impact the life of a child..
Remember, 100 percent of your contribution goes towards purchasing Secret Meals food packs for South Alabama and Northwest Florida’s neediest children. All donations are tax deductible and the difference you can make in a child’s life through Secret Meals is no secret at all!
