Saturday is the 7th Annual “Kids Not Hungry” event. There will be free hotdogs, hamburgers, games, prizes and more. There will also be music, a raffle and free school supplies like notebooks, paper, and pencils. All proceeds from the event go towards helping kids with school supplies throughout the year.

The event is hosted by a Harrisburg couple, Wendy Lindsey and Charles Moon. They don’t want to see kids go without food or school supplies so they host the free event every year. This year the event is on Saturday, August 3rd from 3:00 pm-6:00 pm at 522 south 13th street Harrisburg, PA 17104. If it rains the makeup date will be August 10th.

The couple hosts the event right at their house. The Harrisburg Fire Department and local police officers will also be there to visit and play with the kids.

There will be a Raffle Ticket Drawing this year. The 1st prize winner will get a 32” HD TV. 2nd prize winner will get $50 in cash and 3rd prize $25 in cash.

100% of the donations go towards helping kids with school supplies throughout the year. The couple wants as many kids as possible to come to enjoy themselves and eat lots of food!
