Weekend Backpack Program

Printable info sheet Weekend Backpack Program

Districts will need to locate one or more schools in their area that participate in the Weekend Backpack program. Notify the school program administrator and he/she will give you a list of non-perishable items and backpacks that he/she needs for students who might otherwise not eat from lunch on Friday until breakfast on Monday. Each district can provide backpacks, food, and/or monetary gifts to the schools. Each chapter will be notified by their District Director as to which items their chapter should bring to the district meeting.

This is such a worthwhile program and I know that none of us wants any child to be hungry because when he/she is hungry, he/she cannot achieve to his/her potential in school.

Please bring your items to the district meeting to be distributed by your District Director to the school of your choice.
