“BackPack Buddies” Saturday 4/20, 11:30 a.m. Founders’ Hall

“BackPack Buddies” is the Inter-Faith Food Shuttle program that provides children from low-income households each Friday with nutritious, kid-friendly groceries for the weekends when school breakfasts and lunches are not available. UUFR is sponsoring 15 of those children for this school year as part of our “Focusing Our Light” program.

The Inter-Faith Food Shuttle delivered this month’s food on Wednesday, and we will have our monthly “packing session” on Saturday, April 20 at 11:30 a.m. This is a completely intergenerational activity, and for both adults and children it is a truly rewarding experience.

We have an additional volunteer opportunity: adults and older youth can arrive at 11:00 to assist with setup and then stay for the packing session. If you’re available for either of these tasks, please sign up here (https://www.signupgenius.com/go/30E0D49A9AB2BA0FD0-backpack) or email Susan Silverio ([email protected].)
