2019 started off with a bang for Rogue Powerpack. We received a grant in December and are starting up 3 new schools in February, bringing our total students served to 215 each week. The new schools are Oak Grove, Table Rock and Hillside elementary schools. Table Rock and Hillside are in the Eagle Point School District. All the new students’ families have self-identified as homeless.
We are truly helping the neediest students. With the increase of 45 students, we have 3 new volunteer groups that are joining the backpack program. Medford Rogue Rotary will have Oak Grove, Upper Rogue Rotary will serve Hillside, and the EP Women’s Group will be filling packs at Table Rock.
We continue to be amazed by our angels…Jessica, a nursing student at SOU, procured 500 cans of soup from Amy’s Kitchen and donated them to RPP. Valued at over $1000, that will help stretch our food dollars for the rest of the school year!
