Blessings in a Backpack fundraiser March 11

Posted: Friday, February 28, 2014

Blessings in a Backpack is hosting Dan's Fish Fry on Tuesday, March 11 from 4:30 to 7:30 p.m. at the Huntington Church of the Nazarene, 1555 Flaxmill Road.

Blessings in a Backpack is a nationwide organization with a local chapter in Huntington that provides weekend meals to children that are on the free meal program at local schools.

The cost for the fish fry is $9 at the door or $8 in advance for adults. Children, ages six to12, can eat for $5 with children five and under free. One hundred percent of ticket sale proceeds go to feeding the children in Huntington.

The average cost to feed one child for the entire school year is only $100 or just $2.50 a weekend. Blessings in a Backpack is currently feeding 220 children. The organization is also asking local businesses to sponsor a child for the 2014-2015 school years.  The cost is $100 per child.  If your business is interested in helping feed a child, please contact Dana Meyer at danamccloskey@yahoo.com or by phone at 260-356-2246.
