Watertown Elks Lodge Donates To Area School Backpack Programs
With the generous donation of 20 backpacks from Lodge Trustee Dave Converse, along with business partner and Elk member Donna Zang, and a matching donation from the Watertown Elks Lodge, we were able to donate 40 backpacks to the Indian River School District. In addition, we provided approximately $900 in food items. We also provided $850 worth of food items to the LaFargeville School's backpack program.
In the photo above, an employee of the Indian River School District shows one of the donated backpacks. The backpack program was created to assist in eradicating childhood hunger.
Across the country, teachers and school nurses have found that in some instances, Monday morning comes and they are forced to compete against hunger for the attention of their students. More than 18 million children qualify for free or reduced price meals through the National School Lunch Program, the fuel that they need to get them through the week. What happens to these children when they go home over the weekend? The backpack program fills the gap by providing food items they can take home in their backpack.
Pizza Sale A Huge Success
A special thanks goes out to all those who supported our annual pizza sale. This year, about a 100 pizzas were sold. An extra special thanks goes out to Tammy Eassa and all her volunteers that helped make this year such a success. In the photo above is Tammy and her volunteers. The money raised from the sales will go towards our annual Harvest Dinner in the fall.
