Ringling Bro. and Barnum & Bailey stated, “Just as an elephant never forgets, the Greatest Show On Earth® is hoping the people of Lexington will not forget about the real need in the community to help children battling hunger.” Last year, God’s Pantry Backpack program partnered with 21 different sites to provide over 32,000 backpacks to children in need.
