“We are excited and most grateful to Ingles, their vendors once again, as well as Jim, and Jimmy join us for Headlock on Hunger, not only lending their name but their time and effort to touch so many children and continue our fight against children’s hunger in our community” states Bill Murdock, executive director of Eblen Charities.
“I am honored to be a part of the Headlock on Hunger team and serve as the national chairman,” adds Jim Ross, “as there is nothing more important or rewarding than to help feed a child in need. Hunger will be pinned.”
