Blessings in a Backpack
Blessings in a Backpack is running low on milk boxes, canned chicken breast meat, canned veggies and plastic bags! Please save any durable plastic bags in good condition from Target, Balducci’s, etc. for us. Many other grocery store bags are too flimsy and rip super easily. While Blessings in a Backpack hosts two large food drives each year, we accept donations of food, grocery store gift cards and checks (made payable to LCTA PTA) all school year long. Collection bin in front lobby! Thank you!
