Backpack for Kids Continues

Posted: Updated:

For weeks Sunrise Elementary fifth graders have been raising money to buy food for the Backpack for Kids program.

Students raised more than $1,000 and purchased more than 500 food items from Walmart. The program coordinator says major donations like these help keep the program running.

"That's amazing. They did such a good job, and no only- just, getting the food. But, they did all kinds of other things like learning with the math, and the teamwork and all of that kind of stuff. And I just thought it was amazing that they do this, and they've been doing it for four years now," says Kristi Spilichal, Backpack for Kids Program Coordinator.

During the holiday season,  program staff leaders say it's easy to get donations, but when the season ends, people should realize that donations are still needed.
