    Blessings in a Backpack 
     
    Looking to get involved to help a need in our community? Want to finish your day knowing that you've helped a hungry child? Then please volunteer to help fill bags of food for our school district's Blessings in a Backpack program. Blessings in a Backpack provides food for school children who may otherwise have little or no food to eat on weekends during the school year. Better test scores, improved reading skills, positive behavior, improved health and increased attendance have all been attributed to this program. Every Thursday all the elementary schools in our district get together to pack these bags at Sunny Hill Elementary. Hope you can make time to help feed a child!

    Please refer to the 2016-17 PTO Slate to find the current Chair of this committee as well her his/her contact information.
