Letter to the editor

Wednesday, August 8, 2018

During the past several years, the Saline County community has continued to support the Buddy Pack Program. The program is designed to provide nutritious food to children during the school year. A $180 gift provides a buddy pack for a child every weekend during the school year. The patrons of this community have continued to support the program with their generous donations and various groups have given their time and effort to provide packaging, storing and delivery of the food. I feel blessed to live in a community that provides for their needy children.
