In support of our community, the Service League of Hickory, NC currently donates to the Catawba County Backpack Program. This program provides backpacks filled with nutritious, child friendly, vitamin enriched foods for students in the Hickory Public School system at risk of hunger.
During the school year Service League volunteers pick up bags from the Backpack Program warehouse and deliver the food to area Hickory Public Elementary Schools. These backpacks are available for students to take home on the weekends and holidays when school lunches are not offered. Parents apply for the program through their child’s school counselor.
