May 29, 2020

GREENSBORO, N.C. – Carruthers & Roth, P.A. hosted an internal food drive to support the COVID-19 response efforts of BackPack Beginnings, a Greensboro non-profit organization founded to deliver child-centric services to feed, comfort and clothe children in need. The firm’s attorneys and staff collected donations during the first two weeks in May and were able to donate more than 1,000 items of food to BackPack Beginnings.

“There are many incredible organizations in our community working hard to serve the vulnerable during these uncertain times,” said Chris Vaughn, Managing Director of Carruthers & Roth. “Carruthers & Roth is pleased to be able to assist one such organization, BackPack Beginnings, in their efforts to combat increased food insecurity as a result of COVID-19.”

BackPack Beginnings is working closely with Guilford County Schools and other partner agencies to make sure food and other essential supports are provided to some of the most vulnerable school-age children and their families in the community during the COVID-19 pandemic. In addition to food donations to stock their warehouse, BackPack Beginnings is looking for volunteers and other supplies. There is a “COVID-19 Response” information page on their website which explains how people can help during the pandemic.
