Chick-fil-A of Wilson is once again celebrating owner/operator Christy Proctor’s birthday by helping area children.
Bucks for Backpacks is planned from 10:30 a.m. to 8 p.m. Friday at the restaurant on Forest Hills Road.
This year’s goal is 480 backpacks for children in need throughout Wilson County Schools.
A suggested donation of $25 sponsors one backpack full of needed supplies for a student. Monetary donations can be made on the day of the event or through an online crowdfunding campaign. Needed items can also be dropped off on Friday. Items most needed include binders, paper, pencils, highlighters, two-pocket folders, notebooks, composition books, glue and erasers.
Volunteers are needed for this event. Contact Tracy Wellington at 252-245-0850 to sign up to volunteer.
