Taft Elementary needs volunteers to help fill student backpacks with food for their weekends so they don’t come to school hungry on Monday
A message from volunteer backpack fillers at Taft Elementary
We are gearing up for this school year and have unfortunately lost several key volunteers that have moved out of the area. We need new volunteers this year for the packing and delivery of the backpacks to Taft Elementary school each week. This process takes about 2 hours each week that we have school (not on holidays or school breaks). If we can get more volunteers it will lighten the load for all of us collectively. We try to stager the schedule so that no one person has to pack every week. This program is making a huge difference for kids in low income families who need the additional food for the weekends to better prepare them for each coming school week. Donations of time or funds are always needed to help keep this important program going. People who are interested can reach me at: email@example.com.
We plan on beginning the program the 3rd week of September.
