Benefits of Sponsorship

Give back to the community!

A portion of all proceeds will be donated to: Kids Food Basket. Kids’ Food Basket (KFB) is a Grand Rapids based force for “Attacking Childhood Hunger.” Childhood hunger denies dignity, robs kids of their energy, and undermines our community’s stability. The nonprofit began over nine years ago by serving 125 kids each school day through a Sack Supper program and now serves over 4,800 kids every school day, plus thousands more at local sites through the summer in greater Grand Rapids. Kids” Food Basket is the only organization of its kind locally dedicated to attacking childhood hunger. Join the attack at www.kidsfoodbasket.org.
