What is Leader of the Pack?

Leader of the Pack is a business donor challenge event with a unique Virtual Food Drive fundraising component. Leader of the Pack brings local businesses together to raise funds for the Food Bank of the Southern Tier. Participating corporate partner teams compete to pack the most backpacks in the fastest time while also collecting the most contributions through their custom virtual store.
