St. Paul's BackPack Program

The Back Pack Program:

 Feeds 191 children over weekends and school vacations. The bags are packed by community and church volunteers and are delivered to the schools in Stratford, Groveton, Stark, Lancaster, Jefferson and Whitefield for distribution. The average cost for this program is $6.75 per student per week which includes non-perishable food items and a milk voucher for 1/2 gallon of milk.  This project is funded by the  Neil and Louise Tillotson Fund at the New Hampshire Charitable Foundation, NH Episcopal Church, Roman Catholic Diocese, various local business and civic organizations as well as private individual donations.
