Buddy Bags program to help BV students, families
MANLIUS — A committee of concerned residents has started a Bureau Valley Buddy Bags program to help make sure children have food when they aren’t in school.
Committee Chairperson Brenda Lovick, pastor of the Trinity Evangelical Lutheran Church in Manlius, said the Bureau Valley Buddy Bags program started in discussion last February after several residents learned about a similar program started by residents in the Princeton Elementary School District.
After meeting with representatives of the Princeton group, the Bureau Valley committee started its program in April, giving out 13 bags to kindergarten students and their siblings. By the end of the school year, the Bureau Valley program was expanded to include first-graders and their siblings with 35 Buddy Bags distributed each week.
