Hoops 4 Hunger
Hoops for Hunger is a partnership between Blessings in a Backpack Floyd County and the boys basketball teams at New Albany High School and Floyd Central High School. Together, they raise funds for BIAB Floyd County’s mission: providing weekend food for all Pre-K through 6th grade students at NAFCS who are on free or reduced lunch programs so they don’t go hungry on the weekend. Local businesses make a donation to sponsor three point baskets or free throws made at home game. To become a sponsor click here.
Pigs 4 Kids
The largest, most wide-spread public art fundraiser to hit Floyd County. Our pretty porkers and stylish swine banks are designed by local artists and NAFCS teachers and students. These porcelain “pork”-fections are displayed at local businesses around our community and waiting for you to fill their tummies watch our social media for when this herd of pigs makes their appearance. 100% of proceeds will fund meals for needy kids in our community through Blessings in a Backpack Floyd County.
If you are interested in adopting your own pig they are available for auction through the New Albany Floyd County Education Foundation annual fundraiser.
