Pureflow, Inc., has partnered with Feed the Children, Southern Alamance Family Empowerment Food Pantry, Dream Align Ministries, Meals on Wheels and the Alamance Burlington School System to feed and assist 400 families affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. The event will take place on Saturday, May 9 from 10 a.m.-12:00 p.m. at Pureflow’s parking lot, 1241 Jay Lane, Graham, NC.

The families have been pre-identified based on need. Each participating family will receive a 25-pound box of food such as canned vegetables, peanut butter and mac ‘n cheese; a 15-pound box of essentials like personal-care items such as shampoo, razors and toothpaste; and additional products. During the event, families will be able to drive-thru to pick up these needed supplies. The provided food and essentials will help families in need of basic materials most people take for granted.

 “At Pureflow, we are driven by our core values: people, integrity, and excellence. We value our employees and partners, strive to demonstrate sincerity in what we do and say, and continuously pursue excellence. With a servant’s heart, we aspire to embody these characteristics. Simply stated, our mission is to serve well. We have been blessed during our 35 years in business and it is our joy to give back to our community, in Alamance County,” said Lauren Holt, Pureflow, Inc.’s CFO.

While millions of Americans are waiting to see pending unemployment and stimulus checks, many are left to wonder how they will get their next meal. Families who have never needed help before are now finding themselves in an unfamiliar reality – living with food insecurity. 

In Graham alone, more than 27 percent of the population live below the poverty line. Often, these children and families are unsure of where they will find their next meal. When crisis strikes, such as the COVID-19 pandemic, these families are among the most impacted.

“Feed the Children is taking action to ensure our neighbors aren't forgotten. We understand that many Americans are facing unexpected challenges, and we are working diligently with our corporate and community partners to ensure that as needs rise, children and their families continue to receive the food and supplies they need,” said Travis Arnold, Feed the Children president and CEO.
