BUFFALO, NY - A special event takes place this weekend in Western New York to help feed children in need in our community.
Lutheran Charities is looking for volunteers on Saturday to help package meals to be delivered to the Food Bank.
People are now needed to put meals together, which have all the nutrition a child needs for an entire day.
"We're hearing more kids in Western New York are applying for food stamps," says Steve Biegner, Lutheran Charities Executive Director. "They don't know where the next healthy meal is coming throughout the day. Some families are either going to pay for heat or buy food. So the need is greater and greater each year."
There is an added incentive for those who donate their time. The event takes place this Saturday, October 6th from 8-11am at Skyzone.
Everybody who shows up gets time to jump on the trampolines for free.
