Dear Editor: As we approach the beginning of a new year, River Valley Blessings in a Backpack would like to thank those who helped close out 2021 with a bang!

Fifty-dollar grocery gift certificates for Harding’s Friendly Market in Three Oaks were included in each child’s December pack; Dennis and Staci have helped our project the past nine years. Trinity Lutheran Church of Glendora and The Pokagon Fund contributed funds for the cost of the food. Volunteers from Harbert Community Church, Harbor Country Rotary Club and Three Oaks United Methodist Church prepared the December food packs. Thank you all!

River Valley Blessings in a Backpack provides food on the weekends for school children who might otherwise go hungry. Our program is made possible through volunteers’ time and efforts, food and cash donations, and grant awards. For more information about the program, please visit or our Facebook page, or call (269) 756-9812.
