Weekend Backpack Program for our Homeless College Students: Volunteers can come and bring non-perishable food items and build backpacks that will be distributed to our youth and provide them meals on Sat/Sunday. Many youth don't have basic necessities and rely on food pantries and StandUp for Kids. The ones with Food Stamps run out quickly and over the weekend these kids may only eat 1 meal. Our goal is to give them a backpack of hope each weekend so they never go without. Items needed: non-refrigerated milk; single serve cereal; water; pop top single serving (tuna, chicken, noodles, soup/pasta); fruit cups; breakfast bars; cheese/peanut butter & crackers
