Orcas Today: June 5th-7th

Weekend Packs for Kids Program
Ongoing at the OISD Elementary School Office
The Weekend Packs for Kids program provides child-friendly bags of food for children who have little to eat over the weekend–over 50 grocery bags are needed each week. If you are interested in assembling a bag, each one contains food such as milk, fruit, tuna, cheese and crackers or microwavable soups. Regular full-sized grocery bags can be dropped off at the OISD Elementary School Office. Celebrating its 5th year, this program is made possible by dedicated volunteers, Island Market, Orcas Island Food Bank, OICF, Orcas PTSA, and the community!
