Feeding Round Rock's Future

Our Newest Volunteers

We want to give a shout out to ALL our faithful volunteers, but in particular our newest ones:

ROUND ROCK CHAPEL - in addition to sponsoring our Backpack House, as they have so graciously done from the start, they now take a team in to serve the students in Berkman Elementary.  Thank you, Deborah and Patrick!!

RRISD VISTA WEST - Vista is a branch of RRISD offering, as I understand it, life skills training to physically and mentally challenged students up to age 21.  The VISTA east group has been a volunteer with our program for the last year picking up the Friday distributions for Caldwell Elementary (partnered with St. John Vianney Catholic Church).  This year, Sally Humphries and her VISTA West group is performing the same service for Wells Branch Elementary (partnered with SonRise/First United Methodist Round Rock).  Sally, many thanks and hugs to the young men and women in your program!

Do you know all our partners?  Perhaps your church or business participates; check it out!
