Backpacks UNITE

Seeking to reduce childhood hunger, Rooftop and United Way of Southwest Virginia provides this program to three Head Start classrooms. Backpacks filled with healthy foods are sent home with children twice monthly to ensure that children have access to foods even while they are not in school. To volunteer or become involved with this initiative, contact Amanda Funk at (276) 236-7131 or afunk [at] rooftopofvirginia [dot] com
