Packing it in for hungry children

0

Children’s First Lakeshore Weekend Backpack Program volunteers led by Lois Tuttle each Thursday pack meals for 177 needy local children at Community Church of Douglas. The second-year 501c3 nonprofit CFL received a big boost towards raising at least $50,000 the next three years to feed hungry area youths via a $20,000 matching grant from the Daniel J. Reid Foundation. It will hold a celebration of its efforts including information, a packing station, appetizers, bar and more Sunday, June 2, at Saugatuck Yacht Club from 4 to 6 p.m. For more information, email info@childrenfirstlakeshore.org.
