Local NFL Player Encourages Food Drive in Baton Rouge
November 18, 2011
Mewelde Moore’s Knowledge First Foundation in conjunction with the Greater Baton Rouge Food Bank hosted its annual “Tackling Hunger Food Drive” this month. The food drive began on November 2, 2011 and went through November 18, 2011 in which students from Capitol Elementary and Audubon Elementary worked hard to collect non perishable food items. The homeroom class of each school that collected the most non perishable food items won a pizza party and a meet and greet with the 2009 Super Bowl Champion Pittsburgh Steelers Running Back #21. On Friday, November 18th, 2011, Moore was able to interact with the students and thank them for their hard work and drive to help those in need. Students were also able to take photos and get autographs with Moore during the pizza party courtesy of our corporate sponsor Papa Johns Pizza.
This initiative was important to the Knowledge First Foundation, not just because it was a worthy cause, but because it also encouraged teamwork and community service among the students.
“There are families in our community that are less fortunate so when we are blessed with the opportunity, it’s our responsibility to make sure we do our part to help those in need”, said Moore. “It was a great feeling to see so many young students at Capitol and Audubon Elementary share that same passion and together, we hope to have made more families’ holiday season a blessed one”.
The Knowledge First Foundation was established in 2007 to positively impact youth and underprivileged kids in the Baton Rouge area while providing them with resources to achieve their greatest potential in education and sports.
