Trevor’s Gift Backpack Program kicks into gear for summer vacation

School has ended, but the Trevor’s Gift Backpack Program’s efforts to feed hungry children in Waterloo has not.

During the summer nutritionally needy children can receive backpack food at the Waterloo Memorial Community Center on Oak Street or at the Waterloo Library and Historical Society on East Williams Street. Food also will be available to participants at the LaFayette and Skoi Yase summer reading programs.

Trevor’s Gift is available without charge to all Waterloo School District and home-schooled students in pre-K through grade 12.

Families may sign up at the rec center or the library during regular business hours. Food deliveries will begin the first week in July and continue through August 25. Food will be available on Thursdays each week. Families must pick up the food; there will be no deliveries.

For questions, contact Doris Wolf at (315) 539-8302 or Ellen Hughes at (315) 539-3674.

Trevor’s Gift purchases bags of food from Foodlink, supplementing them with food items purchased locally or donated by the community. The program is confidential and at no cost to recipients, thanks to the generosity of people, businesses and organizations in Waterloo area.

It costs $20 to feed a child for a month or $200 for the year. All contributions are tax deductible. Checks may be sent to Waterloo Education Foundation, Main Street Shop Center. Waterloo 13165. Check us out at www.facebook.com/Trevor’sGift.
