Bowls for Backpacks rescheduledDate: Friday, January 13, 2012 Time: 4:30 pm - 8:00 pm
The Fairbury Community Food Backpack Program continues to provide backpacks filled with food (enough for 3-4 meals) to hungry families and their children each week during the school year. Generous support from individuals, churches and community organizations continues to allow the program to serve hungry children and families in Fairbury.
Inclement weather on December 3rd resulted in postponement of our annual “Bowls for Backpacks” fundraiser event. The new date for “Bowls for Backpacks” is Friday, January 13, 2012. The event will be held in conjunction with the FHS boys and girls basketball games with Auburn at Fairbury High School. Serving will begin at 4:30 pm and will conclude at 8:00 pm. Everyone will also have the opportunity to create their own ceramic soup bowls at this rescheduled event.
The “Bowls for Backpacks” event is the only major fundraiser for our local program and we rely on proceeds from this event to fund a significant portion of our efforts. Thank you for everyone who has continued to support our local community backpack program. We really are making a difference in the lives of hungry children and families in Fairbury!.
