Hello fellow Texans. Jim has asked that we might want to sponsor some of the backpacks for deserving children as a chapter. How about it? How many can we sponsor? 4 maybe 5?

There are lots of Texans coming to Gillette, so at $80 per backpack, how many can we do?

Here is a quote from the Heartland Gives Back program:

The gist of it is this: $80 can feed a school aged child on the weekends for an entire year. This program, with the help of volunteers and corporate sponsors, purchases backpacks, fills them with food and distributes them to children at school on Fridays, thus ensuring the child has food for the weekend. There are 7 schools participating in the program in Campbell County with 5 of those being in Gillette.

I just saw the post by Jim, thanks Jay. I'll pm you soon.

We can't make it to the rally this year but we may be able to help with this.
