For the past 6 years, August has held a special meaning for those of us dedicated to End 68 Hours of Hunger, Barrington. As many of our loyal followers know, The Poulin family lost their amazing little boy JJ in 2017. This year marks the 6th year of his passing. The Poulin family has been honored members of our Barrington community for years. When JJ passed, it affected so many of us that have known all of them and loved them.
JJ left behind two wonderful parents and 3 amazing sisters, all who have made it a priority to honor JJ by doing good in the community. As part of their dedication to sweet JJ Boy, each year, during JJ’s birthday month they hold a fundraiser for our program to support the children in our community in need of more food security. We are so grateful for this fundraiser and ALL they do throughout the year to support our program in JJ’s name.
I have said this before and I will say it again and again, This partnership has meant so much to our program and we are humbled by it. Many of you are aware that our program is 100% volunteer funded, we receive no state or federal support. Our program runs strictly on corporate and individual donations. Fundraisers like this mean so much to us!
