Back in the month of February 2019, Blessings in a Backpack began providing weekend food for 50 children in the Conotton Valley School District thanks to a generous donation that had been earmarked for CV students. Once the program was up and running it was brought to their attention that there were more children in need of weekend food. (42% of the CV student population receive free or reduced price meals). Please consider sponsoring a child. The cost to feed one child the entire school year is $100. In accordance with the Blessings program, these funds must be in place before they can increase the number of children. There are 2 ways to donate: 1.) Via the website: www.blessingsinabackpack.org/donate-to-a-specific-program-or-school/. 2.) By check; all checks should be payable to “Blessings in a Backpack” with the school’s name on the memo line. Checks should be sent to: Blessings in a Backpack, P O Box 950291, Louisville, KY 40295-0291. If you have any questions, call Karen Firebaugh at 740-269-3881 or Jill Putnam at 740.269.2711.
