VCRTA participated in their second annual Spring Service Project. In an effort to help combat child food insecurity in Vigo County and the greater Wabash Valley, VCRTA members collected individually wrapped nutritional food items for the Catholic Charities Backpack Program. VCRTA members learned last year that there are over 13,000 people that are food insecure and that over 1,000 backpacks are sent out every Friday during the school year to help address the overwhelming need.

VCRTA members collected a table loaded with approximately 50 pounds of nutritional individually wrapped food items and collected approximately $100 in monetary donations to support the Backpack Program.
