The number of “Friends of Rogue Powerpack Program”continue to grow and provide some exciting opportunities for us. For the 5-week period of October 15 to Nov 16, First Interstate Bank is conducting a food drive for specific kid-friendly food items for the backpacks. On November 10th
, Scouts from the Crater Lake Council will be dropping off 3500 flyers in the communities of Ashland, Medford, Jacksonville, Central Point, and Eagle Point. They will pick up donated bags of food on November 17th
. The board is considering both of these as pilot programs to learn how the community responds to a specific food request and support our kids over the weekends with much needed food. *** The vision of the board is to sustain and grow the program to reach as many qualified children as possible in Jackson County. We are actively exploring a successful model for our valley that will be sustainable— the essential components being stable revenue, sponsors, and volunteers. Stay tuned.
