Backpack Buddies

Attention Kindergarten and 1st grade, it’s your month for Backpack Buddies!

What is Backpack Buddies?
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.
Please contact Laura VanTine ( or Wendy Jermyn ( with any questions.
Please bring your donations to school by Monday, December 16.
Below are the links to access the flyers
