United Way of Story County supports the Food Bank of Iowa Backpack Program that provides backpacks of food to feed disadvantaged elementary-age children over the weekend and during school breaks. RRSC contributes to this program by giving personally selected gift books to tuck in backpacks three times a year, typically before holidays and spring and summer breaks. In the 2016-17 school year, 309 elementary school students were served.
School Districts Served: Ames, Ballard, Collins-Maxwell, Colo-NESCO, Gilbert, Nevada
