REGIONAL FOOD BANK BACKPACK PROGRAM

Share This

 

As part of RC 10’s ongoing  commitment to Social Justice, our Council has been participating in the Regional Foodbank’s BackPack  Program. This program is designed to meet the needs of hungry children on  weekends when other food resources are not available. During the current Coronavirus school shutdowns, this program is more important than ever for food deprived children. It costs the Regional Food Bank $183 to support a child for the entire year. So far this year $3,099 has been collected.

If you would like to contribute, make checks payable to: The Regional Food Bank and write “RC 10 BackPack Program/Name of School” you would like to support in the memo section of your check. For example: RC 10 BackPack Program/North Colonie. If you do not care which school gets the funds, simply write "RC 10 BackPack Program." Donations are tax-deductible and all donors will receive a donor acknowledgement letter. Please mail your check to Barbara McCarthy, 5 Ascot Circle, Apartment 9, Saratoga Springs, NY 12866. If you have any questions, please contact Barbara McCarthy at irishiz9@aol.com/518-682-2814. Thank you for your anticipated generosity.
