Backpack Buddies - join!
It's that time of year! This year we are committed to providing food-filled backpacks to about 15 Fir Grove students every time there's a day off school. We are looking for three kinds of people. Please see the list below and let Jen know what you are ready to take on!
- Backpack Buddies Coordinator: If you have about 2-4 hours of time to give each month of the school year, this could be the job for you! This involves communicating with the counselor at Fir Grove, scheduling and executing pick-ups & drop-offs, keeping an eye on the inventory and notifying Westside about the needs, occasionally shopping (Westside-funded) to fill in the inventory, and providing occasional updates.
- Cheerful Food Provider: If you have a few dollars in the budget and extra room in your shopping cart, please grab a few needed items to stock the backpack buddies shelves.
- Cheerful Funds Provider: If you have a few dollars in the budget but no time to shop, please mark your donations for "Backpack Buddies" and the coordinator will take care of it.
