‘Give Back’ Night
Chili’s, on U.S. 15-501 in Southern Pines, is hosting a “give-back” night Wednesday, June 23, in support of the BackPack Pals program for Moore County public school children.
BackPack Pals, a program of Moore County Schools, was created to meet the needs of children known to have little or nothing to eat on the weekend.
The program began in 2005 with one school and 25 children. Now, for 2009-2010, 700 children are in enrolled in the program at 21 schools. One hundred fifty volunteers assist in the program.
Chili’s is donating 10 percent of receipts placed in the donation bowl located at the front door of the restaurant to help with this program.
