The Operation Backpack Program’s Mission is to meet the needs of hungry students by providing them with nutritious and easy-to-prepare food to take home on weekends. Our school works with teachers and school personnel to identify chronically hungry children.
How Can You Help
Due to an overwhelming need at Wicklow the school is looking for donations to help support our food pantry. Students who are selected to be a part of the program will receive a backpack with enough food to last over the weekend.
With your donation Wicklow can reach out to many more students and their families who are in need.
