The backpack food program has been a collaboration between HACAP, Pierce Elementary, and Lovely Lane UMC for many years. Lovely Lane has provided leadership, financial resources, donations from local food manufacturers, and dedicated weekly volunteers who pick up, pack, and deliver food bags to Pierce students. This program is crucial for families that struggle with food scarcity.
As with many things this year, the pandemic has required us all to make adjustments. This year, in order to limit exposures and remain healthy and safe, Pierce Elementary will work directly with HACAP to supply nutritious food bags to our students.
Pierce students have been blessed to have such dedication from Lovely Lane. We hope that in the future, we can return to our volunteer partnership with Lovely Lane.
