The Bureau County Republican Women held a fundraiser at Sullivan’s Foods on Saturday, June 16.
The cookout raised $324.26 in funds for the Buddy Bags Project, through which program members prepare weekend meals for children in need within the Princeton, Malden and Ohio communities.
The program prepares approximately 75-80 meals a week, which are then given discretely to the children by their teachers. For these children, the contents therein could be the only food they have for the weekend.
Food for the cookout fundraiser was provided by Sullivan’s.
