MARGARET – The Margaret Lions Club food drive for the Backpack Buddies program was a great success on Saturday.
Lions collected donations at the Dollar General in Margaret from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Over 60 bags of food were donated that day. Lion Faye Pino collected the donations and transported them to North Valley Church. The groceries will be sorted at that location before they are delivered to Margaret Elementary for distribution with the Backpack Buddies program.
The local Backpack Buddies program is centered around North Valley Church in Margaret/Odenville, Alabama. They have a food pantry that is used as the collection and distribution point for food distributed to Margaret Elementary School. The Margaret Lions Club holds food drives and encourages others to donate to the food pantry for Backpack Buddies at Margaret Elementary School.
