Supporting our neighbors in need in Northwest Arkansas during the COVID-19 crisis is easy, safe, and secure right from your fingertips.
Together with local businesses, faith-based organizations, and schools, we're inviting neighbors to donate funds that will be used to purchase a broad selection of much needed items, including peanut butter, canned chicken and tuna, rice, pasta, pasta sauce, canned vegetables, and/or other items that will be given free of charge to schools and other local organizations serving our neighbors in need during this critical time.
Will you join the community as we unite together to provide food during this crisis? Thank you!How does this work? Where does the money go? How does food get to people who need it?
Great questions! The NWA Be Neighborly Food Drive is hosted on the Pure Charity site, a Bentonville-based company with expertise in hosting online fundraising campaigns. Funds will be distributed to The Pack Shack
, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization based in Cave Springs. The Pack Shack will purchase the items in bulk directly from manufacturers to get the most for the money available and will distribute them to schools and organizations in Northwest Arkansas who are serving our neighbors in need.
The Northwest Arkansas Be Neighborly Food Drive is sponsored by the following organizations. Please support these local NWA businesses! To add your organization to this list, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
