Blessings in a Backpack representatives Jill Nittolo and Kevin Kelly recently received a food and cash donations from Newark Rotary Club that will be used to help the community.
The nonprofit organization feeds school children in the U.S. who are fed during the week on the federally-funded free and reduced meal program and are at risk of going hungry on the weekends. According to Nittolo, 250 children in Newark are served through the program.
Newark Rotary Club also helps Foodlink’s Mobile Pantry, Food Sense, Newark Free Lunch, Meals on Wheels and Newark Food Closet with donations and volunteers.
