Volunteer with the Golden Backpack Program

Many Golden-area children qualify for the free and reduced lunch program at school.  The school lunch ensures that they have at least one well-balanced, filling meal each day.  Over the weekend, these same children may go hungry.  The Golden Backpack Program provides these children with a backpack full of nutritious, non-perishable food to take home over the weekend.  This program is looking for volunteers.  The shifts are short, and the work is so valuable to our community.  Please consider lending a hand.
