McCain Foods and Rafters join forces to end hunger
For the Rapids City Times
WISCONSIN RAPIDS – The Wisconsin Rapids Rafters and McCain Foods have come together to donate to Rapids Family Backpack. The Rafters set aside a portion from every order of McCain Foods Smiles at Witter Field during the 2019 season and a total of $275 was able to be raised. McCain Foods added $725 on top of what was raised, totaling to a $1000 donation. This contribution will help provide weekend meals for the families in the Wisconsin Rapids Public School district who are facing hunger.
“McCain has been a great longstanding partner with the Rafters,” said Rafters GM Andy Francis. “Their relationship and commitment to the community has grown year after year. We look forward to our continued partnership with McCain.”
