DAMS Weekend Backpack Program

Requested Backpack Items

DAMS PTO is proud to sponsor the Middle School's Weekend Backpack Program.  This program ensures that all our students have food, even when school is not in session.

DID YOU KNOW?...
In an average month we send home 400 hot meals, 160 breakfast items, and 320 snacks, including canned fruits and vegetables - and those numbers don't even include extra days off school or the holidays!  Your support is vital to the success of this program, and we really can't do it without you.  If your family, business, or organization would be interested in learning more about sponsoring this program, please contact Emily Lauer at ems_8@yahoo.com or Heather Lee at hthrlee24@gmail.com

The DAMS PTO will be holding a Backpack Program Food Drive the week of September 23.  Items from our list can be brought in to school each day 9/23 - 9/27 and placed in your team's bin in the lobby.  The bins will be right inside the visitor door, so parents can drop off donations too if that's easier than sending them on the bus!

The team in each grade with the most donations by the end of the week will win a hat day.  DOUBLE POINTS WILL BE AWARDED FOR DINNER ITEMS (e.g. soup, macaroni and cheese, pouches of tuna or chicken).

Please send in items that are unexpired and can easily be sent home on the bus with middle school students.  Full-sized boxes of macaroni and cheese are great, but full-size boxes of cereal or family-size cans of soup can be too big or too heavy to manage on the bus with several other days' worth of food.

Do our requests seem like too much hassle?  We LOVE Walmart gift cards!!  That's where we do most of our shopping, and gift cards allow us to buy exactly the items we need exactly when we need them!
