Minerva Local Schools will hold several fund-raisers to support its Summer Weekend Food Backpack program, which sends home 310 weekend food backpacks for students each Friday during the summer.
The school district is offering Hope Community t-shirts for $10 with all proceeds benefiting the summer food program, or buy a cup of coffee and 50 percent of all proceeds will be donated.
On May 11 the district will host a blood drive in the elementary school gym from 3-8 p.m. For every 24 successful donors, the district will receive $500 for the backpack program. Participants must call first to sign up.
A Classic '57 fund-raiser night will be held May 17, 4-8:30 p.m., at the restaurant on 317 E. Lincolnway. Twenty percent of all proceeds from take-out or dine-in meals will be donated to help fund the backpack program.
To sign up for the blood drive, or for more information about other fund-raisers, contact Monica Ide, family support specialist, at 330-868-4011 extension 3503.
