the kids tear into the candy bars at 3:30 and leave the rest of that crap on the floor of the bus for the drivers to clean up. take my word for it. they carry it on there and i shovel it out.

personally I think you need to shut up or put up. this back pack club is the best and it helps more people out then you think. We have donated hundreds of dollars over the past several years and it helped out so much.. And as far as the Reeds go with this project Thank you for introducing it to the ones who has helped and the families it has helped

My child participated in this for a while, but I never remember there being any candy bars in there. Maybe granola bars.

The Backpack Club has the best of intentions. Unfortunately, like most things, people abuse it. Children tear open their bags and sell the pieces out of it to other students. Or they take the best things and dump the rest for the bus drivers to deal with. This is fact. There needs to be more regulation so that the students that truly need it, get it. The ones who abuse it, need dropped from the list. This is in no way a bad reflection on the Reeds. They help provide a beneficial service. The YSC/FRYSC end up handling the brunt of the responsibility of determining who exactly needs it. Not always an easy thing for them to deal with since they are responsible for so many things.

What is the issue...This not a welfare program and it is not a government program. This program does not cost the taxpayer one cent. A group of people are trying to do what they can to help kids. The Reeds are not the only ones involved...there are 50 other people that give of thier time, effort, and energies.

You are right! For every bag of "goodies" are thrown on the bus or sold to classmates I feel that some children are getting food for the weekend tnat REALLY need it.

Okay, the Backpack Club is a program designed to help children that may not have a meal over the weekend with viable nutrician. Who cares who prepares the package! Thank God for the blessings we have no matter how small. This is a very good program.

first of all i worked at walmart and personally rung up mant of the things that are put in the bags. but i do agree that they should have certain regulations and make it available to those that are trully in need. there are hundreds of children going hungry everyday. it is very sad. thank you reeds and whoever else has help[ed with the backpack club may god bless you.

but none of the food is food, it's all candy and junk, if it was good food it would be a great program, your missing the point, IT'S ALL JUNK !!!

no it is not all junk i've seen first hand yes there are some junk in it but there is also nutritional food in it like granola bars rameon noodles if you put all nutritional food in it woul the chidren have as much fun with it. i think not. every child needs a little junk food.
