Wildwood Beach, NJ – March 3, 2020 – Barefoot Country Music Fest (BCMF) – the three-day, country music beach concert taking place in Wildwood, NJ Friday, June 19 through Sunday, June 21 – announces that a ‘Fill the Food Pantry’ food drive event will take place on Wednesday, March 4 beginning at 11 a.m. at the Wildwood, NJ ACME, located at 5300 Park Blvd, Wildwood. The ‘Fill the Food Pantry’ event will benefit Lazarus House Emergency Food Pantry in Wildwood.
Participating in the food drive event will be BCMF representatives, as well as students from local schools assisting with donations and taking part in a food shopping spree for non-perishable items from cash donations given.
“We are so grateful for the opportunity to give back to the Wildwoods community, who has so kindly embraced us for our inaugural event,” said Rob Pedlow of Barefoot Country Music Fest. “We wanted to launch our #BCMFBeKind Movement in a big way, so when we heard that the Lazarus House desperately needed donations we had to help. Not only are we going to throw a beach party like the Wildwoods have never seen at BCMF this June, but we also want to spread kindness and positivity while investing in this community through our #BCMFBeKind program”.
BCMF and the Wildwood ACME have partnered together for this food drive event, and all of the proceeds will go to the Lazarus House Emergency Food Pantry in Wildwood, NJ. In addition, ACME Foundation will donate a $5,000 grant to Lazarus House.
“We are thrilled to join Barefoot Country Music Fest to provide much needed support to our longtime partner, Lazarus House,” said Dana Ward, ACME Foundation. “As a grocery store, ACME’s number one charitable focus is hunger awareness, as no one should ever have to go hungry. We are honored to have been asked to be a part of this movement to spread kindness to the Wildwoods community.”
