CONCORD, N.C. – September is Hunger Action Month, and Hendrick Motorsports, their partner Ally, and Hendrick Automotive Group joined forces with Second Harvest Food Bank of Metrolina to pack 1,000 “weekend backpacks” for local children in the area.

Many children facing hunger depend on meals provided by their schools. During the weekend, some students may not have access to proper nutritious meals while at home.

At the event, volunteers from each organization loaded up the backpacks with non-perishable food items that will be distributed to more than a dozen local schools.
