Starbucks helps out Feeding South Dakota's Backpack Program

By  | 

RAPID CITY, S.D. (KOTA TV) - Starbucks partnered with Feeding America Saturday morning for its first annual fundraiser called the Value of One, at Memorial Park Bandshell.

The money that was received from donations at today's event will go towards Feeding South Dakota's backpack program.

Everyone who attended the event enjoyed music by various local musicians and some Starbucks coffee, ice tea, and pastries.

The idea behind, the Value of One, is that each one of us can make a difference.

The backpack program provides a package of food to hungry children on weekends and vacations when they don't have access to school feeding programs.

During the school year, over 1,800 packages of food are delivered and during the summer 700.
