The Backpacks for Friday program provides qualifying elementary students, at Ste. Genevieve R-II, a backpack of food each Friday to take home for the weekend. This year, MRV Banks held a collection at its 3rd Annual Starz 50+ Christmas Party. Their amazing generosity brought in over $750 for the Backpacks for Friday program. Students from the school work to pack the bags for students to take home each Friday and are extremely excited to see this program continue. Ste. Genevieve R-II greatly appreciates all the donations to this crucial program.
