Just a reminder to all that the Christmas Holiday is coming up, and the children at Ingram Elementary who qualify for the Backpack Friday program will be out of school for over two weeks without the food provided for them each week by the school and Backpack Friday. Lisa Gomez, the director of the program, told me that the best food items to donate are items that are already cooked, i.e., smoked turkey, sides, canned ham, or pre-cooked ham.
If you want to donate food, please bring it to the school by Wednesday, December 16, so the items can be sorted and distributed by the time the children leave for the holiday at noon on the 18th. If for any reason you cannot deliver the food, please call me at 830-285-7414, and I will arrange for someone to pick up and deliver the food. If you want to make a monetary donation, please make your check payable to Ingram ISD and write Backpack Friday on the memo line. Mail it to Ingram Elementary School, Attn: Lisa Gomez, 510 College, Ingram, TX 78025.
