City of New Albany’s Generous Donation

Our local elected officials often give financial support to programs that benefit kids and families and Blessings in a Backpack is fortunate to be on that list! At the November 5th New Albany City Council meeting, volunteers from Blessings in a Backpack of Floyd County, Stephanie Watson, Cathleen Palmer and Kevin Beam expressed our gratitude to the Council for having committed to donate $35,000 towards our funding needs for the 2015-2016 school year. In addition to providing updates to the council members on the progress that our new chapter has made in reaching out to individuals, churches and businesses in our community, we answered a lot of really insightful questions asked by the councilmen and women. We are glad to be part of a community that cares so much about its kids!
