This week on StoryLine, we listen to Parker White, founder of the Backpack Beginnings program of Guilford County. In 2010, Parker partnered with Second Harvest Food Bank to establish the program, which sends home backpacks stocked with a weekend’s supply of food to 152 children at 5 schools in Guilford County. Today, Parker shares her personal motivation for becoming involved.
