Children who are hungry have difficulty staying focused for learning. They experience mood swings. They have trouble participating in athletics and other activities. They experience stomach aches, headaches and fatigue. Chronic hunger impacts kids for a lifetime.
One in five children in Colorado belong to families that cannot afford food or do not have regular access to food. The 285 Backpack Project is here to help.
The 285 Backpack Project is sponsored by the Rotary Club of Conifer and the communities of Conifer and Bailey. We help children who do not have enough food to eat at home by providing them with easy-to-prepare weekend meals and snacks throughout the school year. By helping to sustain these children, we want to not only help meet their nutritional needs but also promote their physical, cognitive and social development, and enhance their overall sense of well-being.
Whether you support local scholarships or another of our community projects, we do hope to see you at our next fundraiser and future Rotary meetings.
Your support and contributions will enable us to meet our Conifer Rotary goals and improve our programs. Your generous gift helps fund our mission.
