Sand Hollow Resort was honored to host a charity golf event for Neighborhood Connection, a local organization dedicated to relieving hunger for elementary school students who are at risk of going without food on the weekends when school-provided breakfast and lunches are not provided. The annual event raised $28,000, which will be used to expand the organization’s Pantry Pack program.
As part of the program, Neighborhood Connection prepares and distributes weekly pantry packs to more than 650 children each week. Pantry Packs are gallon-sized zip lock bags filled with enough child friendly food for 2 breakfasts, 2 lunches and several snacks. These packs are distributed throughout Washington County, typically on Friday. The distribution is done in such a way as to preserve the dignity of the children and their families.
“It is so fulfilling to support such a worthy organization,” stated Adam Jasperson, General Manager, Resort Operations. “Our award-winning Championship course provided a beautiful backdrop for the Neighborhood Connection Charitable Foundation Tournament, and we are thrilled to aid them in their goal to alleviate hunger for at-risk students in Washington County.”
