On Sunday November 13th the Jaguars Midget Minor 15 U A team from the Mt. Laurel Igloo helped out the Back Pack Crew Program in Red Bank, New Jersey. The Back Pack Crew is a program started by the United Methodist Church in Red Bank in October of 2013 after hearing about a local elementary school who had families still struggling to recover after superstorm Sandy. The program’s mission is to provide children with food on the weekends when they don’t have their school lunch to rely on. The children bring a back pack with food home for their families to eat over the weekend and on Monday bring them back. With generous support from the community the process is repeated each week.
For their part, the Jaguars team collected and donated the non-perishable food items for 25 Thanksgiving meals. The team then organized and packed the items in boxes to be distributed to families designated by the program.
