Backpacks-to-Go Program
We are close to finishing our first full year of distributing backpacks to needy students in our district.  Twice a month, about 82 backpacks were sent home as a weekend nutritional supplement.  The families and students have been most appreciative of this additional resource.

The last backpack distribution for this school year will be May 15, 2015.  We do worry though about these students’ food supply during the summer when school is not in session.  The Backpack Committee has decided to try and send home a few boxes of food in May to help these families get through the summer months before school resumes in August.  We have 55 families that will need these additional food boxes.

We are looking for groups or individuals to help sponsor a family for the summer.

The cost per family is about $46.00 with the option of enclosing a $10 gift card to Giant Eagle or Wal-Mart.  If you would be interested in participating in the Summer Backpack Program, please contact either Pat Blahovec (blahovecp@penntrafford.org or 724-744-0302) or Lauren Traill (trailll@penntrafford.org or 724-744-2161).

We have a specific list of food items and they all can be purchased at Aldi’s. Thank you for your consideration.
