The Missing Children’s Foundation is one of several local nonprofit charities selected to receive a BI-LO and Winn Dixie grant to support area causes and to promote public awareness.
On Saturday, the BI-LO location on McGrady Drive (off APD 40) will host games, prizes, hot dogs and beverages in celebration of the Missing Children’s Foundation work in the Cleveland and Bradley County area community.
Brenda Lawson, who leads the local Missing Children’s affiliate, urged area residents to attend and to receive a free child safety kit.
“We urge everyone to come on out, bring your children, enjoy the food and fun, and pick up a free child safety kit while you’re there,” she said. “This is a great way to promote awareness of our organization, and the work we do, and it allows the community to learn how it can help protect our children.”
Lawson thanked BI-LO and Winn Dixie, and McGrady Drive store manager Mitchell Cochran for their continued support of the organization, as well as other nonprofit groups in the community.
