Weekend Wheels backpack program
Windsor - posted Jan, 23 2014
WINDSOR - The Weekend Wheels program, a project of the Windsor Hunger Action Team, is actively distributing backpacks filled with supplementary food for the weekends on Fridays to school children in need. This is the first anniversary of the program; it has been very well received by the two upper elementary schools, Clover Street and John F. Kennedy, where the program is currently taking place. The committee is in discussions to expand this program into the lower elementary schools, Poquonock and Oliver Ellsworth. Donations are being sought to fund the purchase of additional backpacks, as well as food drives for backpack specific items. The program is looking for new families to participate. If you are interested in donating or participating, please call Kristen Reardon at Windsor Social Services at 860-285-1839.
