WeekEnd Backpack Program (WEB)
The WeekEnd Backpack (WEB) Program sustains Antigo's future through nutritional support and education. From October to May, backpacks are prepared weekly and sent home through Antigo area schools. They contain easy-to-prepare food, and nutritional information such as recipes, for children and families. Applications are available through school secretaries and guidance counselors. About 400 volunteers help this program work, from packing, transporting, and hanging up backpacks to fundraising and coordinating work. It costs $160 per child per school year to fund WEB. If you are interested in volunteering or making a financial contribution please contact Sarah Olafson at firstname.lastname@example.org.
