Hearts With Hands
The need to feed about 30% of children in Western North Carolina has Hearts With Hands collecting food at the WNC Farmers Market. The food drive also includes the start of Annual HWH Mustang Raffle. Every $100 ticket is a chance to win two 2014 Mustangs. The money from the raffle will help HWH fully fund its food programs which include the Backpack program for area children. This morning, HWH Director of Operations, Chris Plummer showed News 13's Victoria Dunkle the specific items they really need for filling the food boxes and backpacks. He also showed her how folks can get in on the raffle and celebrate the generous spirit of the mountains this Saturday. Tomorrow both North Carolina and New Jersey will honor Taylor Hedden. The 12 year old girl from Henderson county collected toys for the children who were victims of Superstorm Sandy and Hearts With Hands delivered them.
