Arkadelphia Rotary Club supports ALCOA backpack project to provide food and other necessities for children during summer months
The Arkadelphia Rotary Club is joining with ALCOA, the C.A.R.E. Backpack program, and other community partners to collect food and other basic necessities for children during their time away from school.
ALCOA is planning a big event ending the summer drive on August 8 at Central Primary. Arkadelphia Radio station will do a live remote from the school and the Daily Siftings Herald newspaper will be on hand to help recognize participating businesses in the joint effort to benefit local children.
We hope you will help by delivering donations to any of the Arkadelphia Rotary Club meetings in July or to the permanent collection box in the administration suite at Arkadelphia Town Hall, 700 Clay Street.
Your meal donations can mean the difference in whether a local child eats outside of school, so please remember to bring items to be distributed.
