About Summer Backpack Program Packing Day - Take 2!


Time for round 2 of packing for the Summer Backpack Program! We had an awesome turnout for the first day, and we heard a lot of great feedback about how to do it even better. So this round will be all-new-and-improved with more lines and a slightly different set-up so that we can pack twice as much and finish out what we need for the whole summer.

PLEASE NOTE: Please be prepared to be on your feet for up to 4 hours during this event. Volunteers need to be able to lift 10-20 pounds and be fairly agile to work in the assembly lines. For your safety and everyone else's, please wear comfortable, close-toed shoes (sneakers or similar).

Thanks for helping us feed over 800 children this summer!


Parents and children are invited and encouraged to get involved.
