The First United Methodist Church in Vandalia will hold their 3rd “Backpack 2 School” event on Tuesday afternoon. The event will be from 4 pm to 6 pm on Tuesday at the Family Life Center at 4th and Main Streets. Sherry Schneider was a recent guest on the Morning Cafe with Dan Michel and talks a little about the back packs.
And, Schneider says they add in a lot of items into the back packs.
Schneider says they get donations for the back packs and the giveaways and there are many Vandalia businesses that are generous in their donations each year to make the program happen. Also, there will be a boys and girls bicycle given away during the event. We’ll hear more from Schneider coming up tomorrow during NewsCenter.
