GCD recently partnered with The Spero Project in support of their Building Backpacks Program. Launched in December 2009, building backpacks feeds the hungry children throughout the weekends at Gatewood Elementary in Oklahoma City. With the school year over there is an increased risk of hunger for these children throughout the summer months. The Spero Project has partnered with a local church in the neighborhood of Gatewood to help be a part of the solution. Building Backpacks plans to not only provide food but also invest in the young girls by providing women and mentors from the community to build friendships and participate in educational and fun activities. This is a long-term goal with hopes to offer programing to all participates throughout the summer as more financial and volunteer support is made available.
How can YOU help?
1) Join Green Couch and The Spero Project Saturday June 12th, 2010 as four chef teams cook off with the food provided in the backpacks as a surprisingly gourmet meal! Cooking starts at 7:00 p.m. and voting at 7:30 p.m. with activities for the kids and live music running all evening! Tickets are just $10.00 and kids under 12 are free. You don’t have to R.S.V.P. just bring the whole gang to 7 Deli, located at 711 N. Hudson in Oklahoma City.
