NCM Collecting Items for Kentucky Childrens Backpacks

Have you ever had to go a day without food? Two days? Many school children in Kentucky do just that. Feeding America: Kentuckys Heartland has what's known as Adopt a Backpacker... a program where teachers at area schools are provided with kid friendly foods which they discreetly place in needy childrens backpacks on Fridays, so that the kids have things to eat over the weekend.

The National Corvette Museum is helping to create awareness and support of this program by accepting donations of these items October 1 - 11. Visitors donating a food item will receive FREE CHILD admission (or $2 off adult admission) to the museum! A list of sample items, and more information about the program is available online.

Congratulations to Lesley Murphy! She correctly identified Myron Scott, Chevrolet Chief Photographer at the time as naming the Corvette! Lesley scored a Corvette t-shirt and passes to the museum!
