Big News! CenturyLink is holding its annual CenturyLink Backpack Buddies Feed the Children Food Drive June 2-13 right here in Idaho. As part of this effort, CenturyLink is inviting local community members to join employees in supporting The Idaho Foodbank.
Community members who want to help support the drive can bring non-perishable food donations to The Idaho Foodbank at 3562 South TK Avenue in Boise Monday – Friday, 8am – 5pm. They can also participate via the CenturyLink Feed The Children Backpack Buddies Virtual Food Drive.
The CenturyLink Clarke M. Williams Foundation has pledged to match donations made through this drive at $1 per pound of food up to 1 million pounds nationwide, providing the opportunity to increase individual donations with the support of this match. In 2013, the CenturyLink Food Drive resulted in the equivalent of 8.54 million pounds of food being donated to more than 200 food banks across the country.
