Backpack Buddies

ATTENTION 3rd and 2nd grade families, it is your month for Backpack Buddies Donations!!! 
Backpack Buddies is a program for children in the Head Start Program who are at or below the poverty line, who are given bags of food to provide their families with nutritional sustenance for the time they are not at school. We are asking our Waverly families to help by donating non-perishable food items. Each class is asked to donate specific types of food – breakfast items, lunch items, sides, snacks, etc. – which is outlined in the flyers that have gone home with your students.While we’ve assigned specific item types per class, please note that ANY donations are welcome, BUT please do not send in any opened packages (individual granola bars, single fruit cups, cereal bags without packaging, etc.).
Please bring your donations to school by Tuesday, February 18th.  
Please contact Laura VanTine ( or Wendy Jermyn ( with any questions.
