Brunswick County REALTORS® partner with local ministry to provide food to needy children during COVID-19 crisis

IMG 5109The Brunswick County Association of REALTORS® (BCAR) is partnering with WINGS Ministry to provide backpacks stuffed with food to hungry Brunswick County children who are out of school through at least May 15 due to the COVID-19 crisis.  The effort is part of the annual “Stuff the Backpacks” program, which helps ensure that less fortunate children who rely on free or reduced lunch during school have access to food during time away from school.

“During a normal school year many less fortunate children in Brunswick County rely on school breakfasts and lunches to get their proper meals that they might not receive at home. Now, due to the Coronavirus crisis and school closures, more children than ever may be at risk.” said BCAR CEO Cynthia Walsh. “In the past Brunswick County has come together when times have been tough, and now is the time to make a real difference for those who need it most. Supporting the ‘Stuff the Backpacks’ program is an opportunity to help these children keep some degree of normalcy in their lives.”

“Food insecurity is a real struggle for hundreds of Brunswick County children,” said WINGS Ministry founder and CEO Missy Settlemyre. “These children are already faced with so many challenges beyond finding food. Thanks to the generous support of Brunswick County REALTORS®, hunger doesn’t have to be one of them.”

BCAR is accepting food and monetary donations to assist with the Stuff the Backpacks program. Needed items include cereal, spaghetti noodles and spaghetti sauce in non-glass jars. To maintain social distancing, BCAR will arrange meetings for drop-offs. Monetary donations of any amount are accepted, and preferred donation amounts are $100, $60, or $30. Anyone in the Brunswick County area wishing to help should contact Katie Simmons at This email address is being protected from spambots.
