Weekend Backpack Project
This project is to support students at Ashland elementary schools
who may be facing food scarcity at home. Many of our local families depend on
the free and reduced meal programs at our schools that provide breakfast and lunch at school.
The Rotary Club of Ashland will participate with other local clubs in partnering with Access
to provide nutritional food to selected students that they can take home every weekend.
Volunteers on this committee will go to Access headquarters in Medford on Friday mornings
to pack up backpacks with food. The filled backpacks will then be delivered to the schools by volunteers
to be taken home on Friday afternoons.
