In June of 2018, we donated $8,025 to Catholic Charities Food Force Backpack Program. The Food Force shared with us during our fall meeting what our donation dollars helped the charity to achieve in Lake County.
The Backpack Program provides weekend meals for children in the Painesville area. While these students are receiving daily lunch in their schools, meals are not guaranteed during the course of the weekend. Catholic Charities Food Force is actively working to change that. All of the meals distributed are packed as part of job training for intellectually disabled people, and a volunteer network is utilized to distribute the food to children’s homes. Through donations such as ours, Catholic Charities Food Force initially hoped to bring food to 132 students beginning in September.
