Gum Drops
President: Amy Simpson

 What is Gum Drops, NFP?

It is

"a non-for-profit organization that provides a backpack with child-friendly food to at-risk children for the weekends in Southern Illinois.  This program began in January, 2008 in the Cart"erville School System.  The first drop provided backpacks for 12 kids and by the end of the school year (2007-2008) we were delivering 54 backpacks.  In January 2009, we were able to extend this backpack program tot he Herrin School District.  In both school systems, we are now feeding 200 backpacks a week to these at-risk children.  As additional funding comes available, we will be expanding this backpack program to other school districts throughout Southern Illinois."
