Shaler Area Backpack Initiative

Dear Shaler Area Parents and Guardians,
 
Emmanuel Lutheran Church in Etna has graciously agreed to house the Backpack Initiative for the 2020-2021 school year. Maryann Swartz ([email protected]) will continue to coordinate the efforts.  This program was established to assist district students in grades K- 8 in need of weekend food supplies.  
 
Each family participating in this program will receive a bag packed with child-friendly, single-serving snacks and easily prepared meals each week.  At this time, there are no eligibility requirements for participating in this program other than completing and submitting the form found at the link below.  
 
Please note that weekly item distribution is dependent on supply availability. While we expect that supplies will be available for weekly distribution, we cannot guarantee availability. Enrollment will be accepted on a first come, first served basis.  
 
Families and community members that are not in need of participating in the program but would like to donate items or make monetary donations, can send donations to Scott Primary School.  (Please make checks payable to Shaler Area School District and write Backpack Initiative in the memo line.) For more information about the Shaler Area Backpack Initiative, visit the Shaler Area School District Website (www.sasd.k12.pa.us  
 
If you would like to participate in the Shaler Area Backpack Initiative, please follow this link, complete the form and submit. https://forms.gle/j54U3To2UdaYZiEA7
 
Thank you for your continued support!

The Shaler Area Backpack Initiative was established to assist district students and their siblings in need of weekend food supplies.  It was established in 2014 at the Shaler Area Middle School.  It is currently housed at Scott Primary.  

Each family participating in this program receives a bag packed with child-friendly, single-serving snacks and easily prepared meals each Friday. Items sent home each weekend will vary but will inlcude breakfast, lunch and snack items. There are no eligibility requirements for participating in this program other than completing and returning the enrollment form. 
 

This program is funded from donations. We will continue to collect donated food items and money throughout the year to sustain the program.
