Backpacks-To-Go Program

The “Backpacks-to-go” program is organized to benefit children and their families in the Penn-Trafford School District. The “Backpacks-to-Go” program is offered district-wide during the school year. This supplemental nutrition program provides a backpack filled with meals and snacks every other weekend to district children enrolled in the program, made possible through donations from community members, businesses, organizations, and churches in the surrounding area, and PT staff.
If you would like to make a monetary, gift card, food or backpack donation, please contact: Lauren Traill at  or 724-744-2161 or Lisa Popovich at  or 724-744-0302. If you feel that your child could benefit from receiving a backpack during the 2021-22 school year, please contact Mrs. Traill or Mrs. Popovich.
