Fall back and pay it forward to the backpack program


HURON — The Heartland Region Backpack Program has several ways to Pay it Forward this holiday season:

Food drive
• Wells Fargo Bank, 1st National Bank S.D. and Lewis Drug will have locations where food items can be dropped off for the program.

Nut and Chukar Cherry fundraiser
• The annual Nut and Chukar Cherry fundraiser has begun. To order these quality products contact the UWHR at 352-3537. Quantities are limited and are available for delivery.

Sponsor a Child
• The backpack program currently serves 550 children each week. To help this growing program, please consider sponsoring a child for a year.
The six supplemental items sent each week cost approximately $4 per child per week for 30 weeks. If you are interested in sponsoring a child for the Fall Back/Pay it Forward Backpack Program, please contact the United Way at 352-3537.

Help pack backpacks
• Volunteers meet each Wednesday at 2:50 p.m. at the Tiger Activity Center. (Thanksgiving week volunteers will meet on Tuesday.)
