From food shuttle volunteer to staffer, Raleigh mom finds career helping kids
Former CRF Board President Julie Cox:
"I discovered Inter-Faith Food Shuttle while my children were at Wiley Elementary. Along with some other parents, I helped start The Cecilia Rawlins Fund, a foundation named after a former Wiley principal. We raised money to fund part of Inter-Faith Food Shuttle’s BackPack Buddies program at Wiley (the rest of the bags are sponsored by St. Michael’s Episcopal Church). The CRF also helps pay for crisis needs of Wiley students and their families - glasses, shoes, one-time bill assistance. The CRF started with BackPacks for 11 students and, last year, provided weekend food for 26. At Wiley, I also volunteered in the classroom and served on several Support Circle groups to help families transitioning out of homelessness."
