Preschool Backpacks is an effort between Coldwater and the Lee's Summit School District to provide hungry children at the early childhood level with a backpack of food for the weekend. Because this is a separate program from Coldwater's work at the elementary level through Harvesters' BackSnacks, food donations are needed. Food donations can be dropped off at Coldwater located inside Community of Christ Church at 1101 NE Independence Ave. (816-786-0758). For more information about this program or to inquire about volunteering, email NHK@coldwater.me.
