Backpacks and Food Needed for Schoolchildren in Harrodsburg.

Cindy Brown from Harlow Elementary School is asking for help with the Backpack food program:

"As many of you may know, the Harlow FRC operates a backpack food program which sends food items home weekly to identified families.  I wanted to see if any of you had any old backpacks or canvas (zipper) bags just lying around getting in your way…  If so, I’d love to take them off your hands.  Thanks"

Mike Riley  adds the following:
Got an email from Cindy Brown with Harlow School. They are in need of backpacks and/or old canvas zipper bags for use in the backpack program in the schools. For those of you who are not familiar with that program, they send backpacks full of food home with identified kids on the weekends so that they can have food to eat over the weekend.  There was a very nice write up about this in the paper a week or so ago, and the Brotherhood has had food drives for this in  the past.

If any of you have old backpacks or old canvas zipper bags that are just taking up space, please bring them to church and I will gladly make sure that they get to Cindy for this program.

If you have some backpacks or canvas zipper bags you can donate, please see Mike Riley, Amy Riley, or Darryl Peavler.

Since food is desperately needed for this program, you can shop for items on the following list and bring them to any church service to be given to this need.

Here is the Food List. [In PDF Format]

Let's roll up our sleeves and help!
