Fundraising For "To Fill A Backpack" To Start Monday

The “To Fill A Backpack” program will start their McKean & Potter County fundraising campaign on Monday, June 15, 2009.

The program will be seeking donations from the following areas: Austin, Coudersport, Eldred, Galeton, Port Allegany, Roulette, Shinglehouse and Smethport. Donations can be made in the form of a monetary donation which will be used to buy supplies to fill the backpacks or in the form of backpack supplies.

Backpack supplies consist of pens, pencils, notebook filler paper, pencil erasers, 3 ring binders, rulers, etc. There is a complete list of suggested items on our website www.tofillabackpack.org or call at (814) 544-8032 for more information.

A lot of help will be needed this year and we are hoping everyone will get involved and help a child in need. If you are interested in making a donation, please see our website for information or mail your donation to “To Fill A Backpack” – 81 Burleson Avenue – Roulette, PA 16746.

The program filled and distributed over 250 backpacks last year. We are hoping to help more children in more areas this year. Last year’s donations were collected and distributed in about 3 weeks time. Due to the ability to get started with the drives earlier this year we hope to be able to reach out farther.

The only requirement to participate in this program is to be a boy or girl in elementary or high school and be in need of a backpack. There aren’t any forms to be filled out and we don’t require a name (unless it is needed for backpack delivery). We do ask that you only request a backpack if it is needed…not because it is there. We need to be sure that all children that do need the backpacks are able to get them.

Backpacks will not be distributed until the end of July. If you will be in need of a backpack please call (814) 544-8032 to put your name on the list. Calls will be taken between the hours of 10am and 8pm, Monday through Friday. If someone is unavailable to answer your call, please leave a message with your name, phone number and other pertinent information.
