Through the Backpack Program, students at risk of “food insecurity” confidentially take home a bag of food each Friday so they can have food over the weekend and arrive back at school, ready to learn. Every Friday, a dedicated group of volunteers is involved with bagging the food and delivering these bags to the classrooms of the identified students. In order to get this food into the hands of the affected students, we need YOU to help!Volunteering for the Backpack Program is an easy way to make a real difference in a child’s life. It only requires about one hour of time on a Friday morning. You can sign up for as many Fridays as you are able. We have a committed group of volunteers returning to help this year, but we need more people to get involved!
There will be a training/orientation meeting for both returning and new volunteers to go over basic policies and procedures for the program.
