The Education Club and School Psychology Assoc. fill backpacks for students
HELP US FEED STUDENTS IN NEED
The UMass Amherst Education Club and the UMass School Psychology Association are working with the Holyoke Public School Full Service Community Schools Basic Needs workgroup to benefit the Holyoke Public Schools Backpack Program. This program provides a backpack filled with nutritious food every Friday to students who have little access to food over the weekend. Last year this program filled over 4,800 backpacks and they have been asked to expand as much as possible.
