The Salvation Army Backpack fundraiser brought in approximately $27,000 to help feed local children with the help of Cardinal Glass, who contributed $10,639 to the successful event’s total. Angela Moulton from the Salvation Army said, ““Once again I am overwhelmed at the community and their support of our Backpack Program. Many people showed up and gave so generously to our annual fundraiser to help feed hungry kids. The dollars raised at this event will stay in Polk County to continue to support this important program. Last year we helped about 300 families each week with a backpack full of food. We could not do this without many people coming together to make it happen. I am so thankful for the communities we serve.”
