United Way of Story County supports the Food Bank of Iowa program 'Backpack Buddies' 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 2015-16 school year, 195 students were served. We have added Colo-NESCO and Collins-Maxwell schools to the program in 2016-17!
