BackPack Program

We are beginning a partnership with a food bank.  It is called a BackPack program through Central Pennsylvania Food Bank. I was fortunate enough to hear about it and decide with help we could do it.  
A grant from a local agency has got the ball rolling.  Now, setting up the volunteers needed to pack food into the backpacks and ordering food and identifying the children will take some time. Oh and we are doing a food drive for the Easter holiday and to kick off the program.  The food drive flyer will be attached to a brown lunch bag to give the kids who can contribute as a reminder and something to stuff items into.
I am providing a link to the BackPack program. Hope it becomes clear where you should use your talents in a similar way!
