Vail Daily letter: Keeping packs full
Vail, CO, Colorado
Food Rescue Express and the kids in Food for Kids Backpack Program want to wish each of you a happy, healthy and safe holiday and new year.
Thank you for your very kind donation of food from our shopping list and your financial donations. Thank you, Vail Resorts Echo Program, for your donation. Without the donations of food and financial ones, we would be unable to continue the program.
From September to December 2011, we have done 648 backpacks equivalent to 3,888 meals. We are doing about 70 backpacks a week. We have made a huge impact in some of the elementary schools and will continue to do so. We want to make sure that the kids stay healthy and happy throughout the school year.
We would like your help. If you would like to support a child with food for one month, it’s $30, and for one school year, $200.
We are a non-profit exempt organization under section 501(c)3. All donations are tax deductible. We are an all-volunteer program and not affiliated with any other organization.
