Days to pack: First Monday each month – Thank you for all your help


Another year of JFY packing is under our belts and I thought I’d share a few numbers with you. For the 2023-2024 school year we packed approximately 2836 bags. There were weeks when extras had to be packed because numbers increased between packings, so the number of bags was slightly higher. Our total spent for the year was $17,098. There were also donations of some snacks which helped to keep that number down a little. Given these numbers, this means we spent just over $6.00 on every bag we packed. Once again, I want to thank everyone who has helped with this program in any way. As a retired teacher who saw hungry children struggle to concentrate in class, it warms my heart to know that we are helping to fill bellies over the weekends. It’s my prayer we can continue for years to come.  

Blessings for a wonderful summer, Debb Bowman
