As a result, the Lady Bears presented a check for $650 to Andrea McCusker who helps with the local chapter. End 68 Hours of Hunger is a private, not-for-profit, effort to confront the approximately 68 hours of hunger that some school children experience between the free lunch they receive in school on Friday afternoon and the free breakfast they receive in school on Monday morning. Locally, this organization helps to support 18 families in Northwood and surrounding towns with food for the times that students are not in school.
