Have you ever wondered how our Backpack Program got its name? Every week we fill anywhere between 25 to 45 backpacks with food to be distributed on Friday via our school connections to families who otherwise wouldn’t have sufficient food over the weekend. Normally these backpacks are returned on Monday morning, however these are not normal times. So we are very grateful to our friends at Ulster Savings Bank who donated reusable fabric bags to allow this program to continue through the covid19 crisis.
