Community Chest Spotlight: Campora Family Resource Center
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.
