Dear Editor:

With summer almost over school will soon be in session, and Washington Weekend Snackpac will be packing and delivering Snackpacs to children in need in our Washington schools.

The upcoming 2019-2020 term will be our fifth year of providing a free sack of nonperishable food on the weekends throughout the school year to children who qualify and opt into our program. This is a huge endeavor; last year we packed and delivered 11,500 Snackpacs.

In an effort to help fund this program, The Ice Cream Shack of Sunnyland has agreed to host a fundraising event with a percent of sales going to the Snackpac program. Please consider supporting Snackpac with your purchase at The Ice Cream Shack of Sunnyland Saturday, September 7.
