Red Nose Day is an organization devoted to ending childhood poverty. On May 24th, the whole country will unite with their sparkly red noses to raise money and awareness for childhood poverty. One of the biggest issues for children living in poverty is access to nutritious food when they are not at school to receive breakfast and lunch. Second Harvest Food Bank is helping bridge that gap with our Summer Food Service Program. We provide meals to students during the summer months to help supplement the meals they will not get while they are out of school for the summer. They are tying Red Nose Day into an event at the food bank to get things ready to begin serving the children for the Summer Food Service Program. This is a wonderful way to volunteer at the food bank and help support their programs as well as the Red Nose Day project. They will have noses, bracelets, and pens available on site for purchase and will have some fun photo opportunities as well so that you can show your friends/family/co-workers that you are supporting two causes with focuses on helping children!
If you’re not able to help volunteer on this day, you can purchase your nose at any Walgreens Drug Store. As the big day approaches, people all across America will buy Red Noses at Walgreens and go Nose to Nose to raise awareness and funds to help children in need. Wear your red nose on May 24th, and tune into NBC for a special night of prime-time programming celebrating Red Nose Day.
