Fill The Backpack – Thanks!

Each month, Southeast Linn Community Center sends home backpacks of food with the many children in Mount Vernon and Lisbon who are “food insecure.” This extra food is intended to help them get the calories and nutrition they need so they can better find success at school.

In November it was our congregation’s turn to back the backpacks (or rather, pack the plastic bags that would be put in the backpacks!). We had a great group of volunteers on Thursday, November 20 and got all of the work done in one hour.

Thank you to Al Ahrens, Becky Ahrens, Mary Clare Coulter, Carol Daly, Dixie Mackie, Pam Mott, Vern Pitcher, Laura Werkman and Lori Wunder for helping out!
