BackPack Program: NON PERISHABLE FOOD ITEMS NEEDED
The BackPack Program partners with Henderson County Schools to help provide supplemental food during the school year to children who are not receiving regular meals at home. Backpacks filled with non-perishable foods are sent home with children each week to help provide those needs.
We are collecting non-perishable foods in child-friendly packaging at GMR. Collection bins are on the Children’s hallways. For more information contact Amanda McLamb:
