Last year we were able to present Charlie’s pantry and the back pack program each $815.40 which was $316.80 more than the previous year. Our success is due to the support and generosity of area businesses and the support of the everyone who attends. With your help we are hoping to surpass last year’s totals.For anyone not familiar with the back pack program: on Friday before the kids leave school for the weekend, participants are given a back pack full of nutritious food. Whatever is in the backpack may well be the only food hat child has for the weekend. Charlie’s pantry helps with food, fuel and many other helps. The Lebanon Valley seniors do not take any money from this fundraiser. What we do get is the extreme satisfaction of knowing that we have been able to help others who are in need .Please come and support us and there’s sure to be something for everyone.
