BIRMINGHAM — In an effort to aid families and students during the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, Full Moon BBQ has launched a statewide giveback program for the children of Alabama.
“Backpack Blessings” will begin on Tuesday, Sept. 15 and run through Nov. 30 to provide food, supplies and hope to students across the state. The restaurant chain will be accepting nominations through an online nomination form.
Multiple children will be selected each week across the 12-week period to receive a backpack blessing valued at more than $250, filled with a $25 gift card to Full Moon BBQ, $25 gift card to Walmart, Full Moon BBQ leather planner with calculator, USB flash drive memory stick, school supplies, hand sanitizer, disposable face masks, and an array of Full Moon BBQ swag items.
“2020 has thrown many unexpected and undeserved curveballs at our communities; whether that be loss of jobs, virtual learning, or a general shift in daily activities,” said David Maluff, Co-Owner of Full Moon BBQ. “Full Moon BBQ is dedicated to the communities we serve and look forward to delivering food and supplies to children and their families while also providing a glimmer of hope during a tumultuous season.”
“After the high demand from Full Moon BBQ’s ‘Feed a Friend’ giveback initiative during spring 2020, as a company and community partner we were focused on pushing forward with a new campaign to continue to keep our communities fed, both emotionally and physically,” said Joe Maluff, Co-Owner of Full Moon BBQ.
The restaurant chain has multiple locations across the Birmingham area, including Trussville, Inverness, Fultondale, Hoover and Homewood.
