Helping Hands of Roslyn Rd. School
Blessings in A Backpack and Roslyn Rd.
Barrington Children's Charities will be funding the Blessings in a Backpack Program for ALL schools in Barrington 220. Blessings in a Backpack provides students who qualify for the Free and Reduced Lunch program with six to seven food items to take home over the weekend.
This year's program, which kicks off our 8th year of Blessings will begin on Thursday, September 12th and will run until Thursday, May 21st.
Packing takes place every Thursday from 9:00 am to 10:00/10:30 am in the multi-purpose room at Sunny Hill School, 2500 Helm Rd., Carpentersville. At least one volunteer from Roslyn is asked to assist each Thursday morning. Once packing is complete, the volunteer is responsible for taking and dropping off the packed food to Roslyn. The office then handles distribution of the bags to the individual student recipients as this is done on a confidential basis.
There are a few exceptions to this schedule … 1.) The week of October 13th we will pack on Wednesday, October 16th due to Parent Teacher Conferences 2.) We will not pack Thanksgiving week 3.) No packing over winter break 4.) No packing over Spring Break
A few important messages:
Pre-school children are welcome to attend and to help pack if interested but must be supervised by their parent(s) at all times.
We realize that last minute things come up but if you do sign up to volunteer and realize you cannot make it please do your best to find a replacement. If you have any issues then please contact Roslyn Coordinator, Keri Culhane at [email protected] or 734-945-1134
Lastly, thank you for all of your help! Volunteers are essential in making this worthwhile cause work!
