Srpring Cleaning for Back to School

We worked today to complete some cleanup begun with an excellent workday 8/10, a First United Methodist Faithworks event.  As we wrapped up the painting and spiffing on our Backpack House, I thought about how we always cleaned out the closets, tried on school clothes to see what would fit for the new year, made lists of what my children needed and shopped before school started.  We're right there now, getting ready for this school year with our Backpack program; the expansion construction will wrap up this week, the first grocery delivery arrives on Thursday with another, larger one on Tuesday next week and the first backpack kits go to the students on September 13.  It will be exciting to see some of our old friends (this will be year four for us at Wells Branch Elementary) and to meet new, incoming students.  I love to see the changes, growing taller over the summer, growing up. 


It makes me very happy to be a part of Feeding Round Rock's Future.  Thank you to all of you out there that make this intense volunteer effort possible:  It couldn't be done without you and without your support.   Check our blog regularly for updates and spotlights on many of you who work with us!
