Backpacks in Bend


The need for " Backpacks in Bend" is growing. The need is greater than ever for students to be supplied with a stable food supply over the weekend. The program started at Nativity Lutheran Church. The youth group puts together the backpacks with non-perishable food, so kids whose main food supply is the school district, don't go hungry over the weekend. Amy Fraley started the program: “We started with 25 backpacks and we're up to more than 100 families per weekend and that represents at least 300 meals per weekend.” Backpacks in Bend started in the fall of 2009. The Rotary Club of Bend is helping raise funds this spring to support this program.
