Backpack Blessings/Debi O'Dell

64889_1460565[phone redacted]_funddescription.jpThe mission of Elk River Backpacks is to provide food to elementary students whose main source for food is their school. We provide a back pack of nutritious, kid friendly food each weekend. 
We now hawe 131 students in our program. We serve seven schools. 
We need help providing food each week. At the approximate cost of $10 per back pack, we need $1000 to maintain our current level service. We are asking you to "pack a bag" by donating $10. Our program is housed in Clendenin Methodist Church in Clendenin, WV. Our coordinator is Debi O'Dell, a retired teacher with 37 years of service in our local high school. With the help of community members, the program continues to grow. All material and labor is provided by community volunteers. Please check us out at
