This year at Dugan Elementary School, we are going to offer a Back Pack Program. The purpose of this program is to provide supplemental food and toiletries over the weekends and holidays to Dugan students and families who are in need. Food and other necessities for these students will be provided through donations from our P.T.A., parents, and community volunteers.
You can help support the Dugan Back Pack Program by donating some of the suggested food items. Please note that all food items should be non-perishable. Foods should provide nutritional value, be compact and easy to carry, and nothing should be too large or too heavy. (Example: Instead of sending a gallon sized apple juice, consider sending small or individually boxed juices or juice pouches. Small, individual cereal boxes are easier for students to carry than large boxes of cereal etc.) Please do not donate any glass or metal cans.
Please take a moment to look over the list of needed items. Keep in mind, that this is only a suggested list. Any non-perishable items would be greatly appreciated. If you are interested in assisting with the Back Pack Program, donating items, or you would like for your family to be included in the program, please contact me at 770-949-5261. I look forward to working with you this year.
