Backpack project update
On Saturday, Aug. 12, 2023, children and families visited PRMS to pick up backpacks and school supplies. Through the generous donations of individuals, organizations, and businesses, those young students are off to a great start for the 2023-2024 school year.
Monetary donations are still graciously accepted, allowing MFTHCI to purchase items at sale prices throughout the year. Donations can be sent to MFTHCI-Backpacks at PO Box 793 in Merrill.
Families of students in grades K-6 who qualify for free or reduced school lunch under federal guidelines that are new to the Merrill area, or those that were unable to pick up backpacks on Saturday the 12th, should contact Jana at Children’s Wisconsin at 715.539.5441 to get needed supplies.
