Caitlin Morrison, Franklin High School student and organizer behind the Oliver and Parklane Backpack project, needs our help! This program is providing food for about 40 elementary students every single weekend and allows them to come to school Monday morning ready to learn instead of hungry.  We’re looking for groups, organizations or churches that could sponsor the program by taking ONE weekend a month.  It isn’t a huge commitment and it helps immensely!  Contact us at: jenny@rosewoodinitiative.org
