No one wants a child to feel hunger pangs. One less fast food stop or gourment coffee would feed a child ALL weekend.
Only $5 feeds a child EVERY meal ALL weekend. $200 feeds your sponsored child EVERY weekend ALL of the school year.
A child without food cannot learn and becomes an adult that cannot earn.
In Davidson County families:
|Have had to choose between food and education expense||Have had to choose between food and transportation||Have had to choose between food and housing||Have had to choose between food and medicine||Have had to choose between food and utilities|
1 in 3 children in Davidson County miss meals daily because they have no food. Perhaps that number shocked you the first time you heard it, but as time passed the shock value lost some of its impact.
Our center has helped eliminate childhood hunger since 2006. We were the first weekend feeding program in Davidson County. Children in four elementary schools now benefit from a generous supply of weekend food.
Through your partnership with us 180 children attending Brier Creek, Pilot, Fair Grove and Thomasville Primary schools will eat nutritious food throughout the weekend. These children attend Davidson County/Thomasville Schools. We can't turn our backs on our own KIDS.
FGFRC must raise $26,000 to feed these kids. Any donation is appreciated and is 100% tax deducctible. By combining donations we can eliminate childhood hunger. You can donate here on our website or mail your check to: Fairgrove Family Resource Center, 159 Myrtle Drive, Thomasville, NC 27360.
September is Hunger Action Month, a national initiative to help raise awareness for the needs at food banks across the country. Plan now to make September 2015 a time for your family and neighbors to stand together against hunger, joining Fairgrove Family Resource Center to see that children in this community have healthy, nourishing food to eat on weekends. One person CAN make a difference. Imagine what a whole community can do!
Ya'll are friendly and non-judgmental. The world need more of that. God bless ya'll for blessing our family.
Auction big success!
The community response to our auction to raise programming funds for our center was fantastic! We had generous donations from local businesses and individuals making the event truly memorable. We had a record number of people attending from children to seniors. There were lots of good buys and "good hearted" buys. We auctioned large items (pallet of flooring, furniture), small items (jewelry), live items (plants and flowers), liquid items (bottles of wine), outdoor items (chairs and child's picnic table), artsy items (Paintings, prints and pottery), and yummy homemade food items.
Half way through the auction, the FGFRC Board of Directors presented Director Terri Fisher with a plaque to show their appreciation of all the hard work, love and devotion she has given to the resource center.
Everyone had fun thanks to Dale Norris, our auctioneer. Our preliminary auction results without selling the shed donated by Shady Grove United Methodist men is $14,335. We still have Dr. Berky's amazing offer for a complete set of braces for $3,000. If you are interested in this offer please contact us at 472-7217. We wouldn't be here without the great support from this community.
Mark your calendars for our golf tournament on June 20 at Lexington Golf Club.

I am very grateful for the service and programs provided by Fairgrove Family Resource Center. They have provided my family with invaluable information that benefits us in so many ways. I think many families I know would benefit from taking parenting classes.
