Campora Family Resource Center is an organization that provides and coordinates services to aid in the empowerment proficiency and development of cohesive family units. Campora is requesting $1,000 to purchase food from Second Harvest Food Bank for the Backpack Program. The Backpack Program is designed to bridge the food gap for local school children (pre-K through high school) during the weekends. The Backpack Program serves more than 350 students weekly from all of the Franklin County schools. The cost to provide a backpack with food for one child is $2.70 for one weekend, $10.80 for one month, or $97.20 for one school year. Volunteers are always needed to help with the backpack service. To volunteer, contact Eric Vanzant at 967-7825.
