Backpack Program at Fort Edward School

The Backpack Program at Fort Edward is designed to meet the needs of hungry children on weekends when school breakfasts and lunches are not available. It provides bags filled with non-perishable, child-friendly and easily consumed food. Bags are packed each week by school staff and discreetly distributed to participating children every Friday afternoon.


St. James Church is currently accepting financial donations toward this project. The funds will be given to the school through Connie Colvin and the congregation at St. James.

Please note, there are informational brochures on tables in various locations at Durkeetown. Help out if you're willing and able.
