Scott’s Run Settlement House 
Backpack Feeding Program
Every Third Wednesday of the Month
From September through May


From Linda Baer, retiree, board member, and coordinator of the volunteer program:

We, the WVURA members, have decided to work as a group with the Backpack Feeding Program. During the school year, our role will be to pack bags with food that is sent home with school children so they have food over the weekend. The food is purchased by Scott’s Run Settlement House with grant funding. There are over 800 children enrolled in this program in Monongalia County.

We are scheduled the third Wednesday of each month at Scott’s Run. We will begin at 1:00 PM. It should only take 1 to 1 1/2 hours.

Please let me know if you will be participating. I understand that not everyone will be able to be there every time, but the more helpers we have the faster it will go! We have been provided with WVURA T-shirts. Please let me know what size you would like and I will bring one for you that day.

Please feel free to contact me with questions. I can be reached on my cell at 304-685-2642 or email me at nursebaer@icloud.com.
