John Burrow Memorial Fundraiser
In loving memory of John Ross Burrow, a former Feeding Children Intern that believed no one should go hungry.
Thanks for checking out my fundraising page!
We would like to thank all the wonderful volunteers and contributors that have made two food packs in John's honor such a great success. There were about 120 volunteers at each event.
The family will continue to update this site and to donate on this site to work towards a third pack. The first 2 packs combined for a total of 75,000 meals. We are working to put that number over 100,000. Feel free to contribute with us and help to keep one of John's many goals alive, to eliminate hunger. Every $1 is 4 life-saving meals!
On May 13th 2017, we packaged 50,000 meals in Frederick County, VA. These meals were distributed in John's honor to the Boys & Girls Club, Congregational Community Action Project "CCAP", and Shenandoah County Food Bank.
On April 14th, 2018 in Asheboro, NC we honored John and and his grandfather O.C. Burrow, a former teacher and coach in Randolph County by packaging 25,000 meals for Randolph County, NC. These meals were contributed in their honor to the Christians United Outreach Center "CUOC", who will distribute the meals as needed in county.
