‘Backpack’ Program Volunteers Needed

Saturday, February 7th, 2009

backpacks1A public service program, known as “To Fill A Backpack,” is seeking volunteers in Austin, Coudersport, Galeton, Shinglehouse, Smethport, Eldred and Port Allegany. Help is needed to raise funds and distribute school supplies to underprivileged families.

The project was launched last August by Andy Kulp and Jackee Culver, who purchased backpacks and filled them with supplies for a family’s three children. They spread the word of a significant need and donors came through with enough supplies for more than 200 backpacks for area students.

Excess items were donated to the Christmas House in Coudersport to be sent to storm-struck Texas, and to the Operation Christmas Child program through the Christian and Missionary Alliance Church in Coudersport.

Those seeking more information should call 544-8032.
