Weekend Backpack Program – Donations Requested
Again this year, KSDS will be participating in the Weekend Backpack Program on January 23rd. We will be packing food into backpacks to be sent to two city schools: Tench Tilghman Elementary/Middle School and Collington Square Elementary/Middle School. During the week, these schools feed the children–many of whom are homeless–a breakfast, hot lunch, healthy fruit, and a sandwich before they leave at the end of the day. But on the weekends, many of these children are hungry. With your help, these backpacks will be filled with enough food to last the child and his/her family the entire weekend.
Please help us make this program a success by helping us fill the backpacks and bringing in the items specified below. We will be packing 33 backpacks on Monday January 23. Thank you for helping KSDS make a difference in our community!
