Bonsall Woman’s Club February Meeting

By   /  February 1, 2020  /  No Comments


Bonsall, CA — Each year the Bonsall Woman’s Club (BWC) president chooses a local charity to focus on.  This year, current BWC President, Arlene Rutherford, chose to join in with a group of retired teachers and other neighborhood volunteers to support a magnificent program they started called ‘Love on Your Back’, which is in conjunction with the Bonsall Unified School District.  The ‘Love on Your Back’ program consists of sending a backpack full of food home with the participating students each weekend.  During the school week these low income and/or family crisis students rely on reduced cost or free school breakfast and lunch as their primary source of nutrition.  The backpacks are filled with nutritional foods these children are so desperately missing in their weekend diets.   To quote a nurse in the Bonsall Unified School District, “these kids need food!” As Carol Wood said, “Children can’t learn when they are hungry”.

Carol is president of the Love on Your Back program, which is a 501(c)(3) charity. There is also a container in the office of Bonsall Elementary and Sullivan Middle Schools to donate food items.  Items needed are shown on their Facebook Page: Love on Your Back.
