Blessings in a Backpack fundraiser will help feed students in need

More than 100 community members attended the Blessings in a Backpack fundraiser on March 8 to support District 58 students in need.

Blessings in a Backpack is a national nonprofit that provides low-income children – including children in District 58 – with food to eat over the weekend. In District 58, the program is active at all 11 elementary schools. The March 8 fundraiser brought in thousands of dollars to support the District 58 chapter of Blessings in a Backpack! We want to especially thank the Sigale family, pictured in the photo gallery above, who donated $2,600. This is the total amount needed to fund the Blessings program for one year at their home school of Indian Trail. Thank you!
