River Falls Rotary is Proud to Sponsor the Our Neighbor's Place
Backpack Food Program
Our Neighbor's Place Backpack Program provides a backpack full of food to qualifying school-age children on Fridays to help provide adequate food over the weekend. Over the holidays, the backpacks are enhanced with milk and meat vouchers as well. The River Falls Rotary Club is proud to sponsor the holiday backpacks for over 80 River Falls children.
