Kids Backpack Progam

Every Friday, non-perishable food is placed into backpacks for Sumner-Bonney Lake school children who have been identified as in-need.  Kid-Friendly food is provided so that students have food over the weekend so they can come back to school nourished and ready to learn.

 

Children served in the following schools:  Dieringer Heights Elementary School, Emerald Hills Elementary, Bonney Lake Elementary, Victor Falls Elementary, Liberty Ridge Elementary, Lakeridge Middle School, Mountain View Middle School, and Bonney Lake Senior High
