Backpack 4 Kids

Backpack 4 Kids Program

Backpack 4 Kids

The Backpack for Kids Project has provided food to many children who have food insecurities over the weekends and long holidays.  Donations have come from area businesses, organizations, churches, and individuals.  Starting in 2018-2019, in addition to food, we would like to provide emergency new clothing, bedding and school supplies throughout the year to PreK-12 grades.  Your continued donations of money will help provide for those needs.  Checks may be made out to South O’Brien Community School with Backpack 4 Kids in the memo.  Food donations are still accepted and are greatly appreciated.  Monetary and food donations can be dropped off at the Superintendent’s office in Paullina or the Elementary Principal’s office in Primghar.  Please, no donated clothing or bedding as we do not have the space for it.  We will purchase as needed.
