Back Snack volunteers meet at GSC
9:00 AM
Volunteers wanting to help pack backpacks for the Good Samaritan Center are invited to join our group at the GSC downtown. This program, sponsored by Harvesters, helps put nutritious foods in the hands of students who normally would not get to eat away from school and home for the weekend. This program discreetly helps these children have a regular meal.

This week, volunteers will be stuffing backpacks with 2 weeks of supplies. The work usually takes a couple of hours, depending on the number of helpers.
