GLADWIN – The Gladwin Backpack Buddies program is in its eighth year of running in the Gladwin schools. Through the Food Bank of Eastern Michigan’s program, weekend food goes home each Friday to K-5 students who live in a food insecure environment.
While this program is funded solely with donations and grants, the program has been able again this year to help 96 children. In order to sustain the program at this level, the program leaders need your help. While the cost to sustain a child a year is about $100, any size donation is welcomed.
Please consider making a contribution to this much needed program in the community. Send your check to Christ the King Lutheran Church, 600 S. M-18, Gladwin, MI 48624, specifying it for “Backpack Buddies.”
