Funds from Masonic Lodge Garage Sale Donated to Cassville's Backpack Program
Pythagoras Masonic Lodge #383 of Cassville had a garage sale with all proceeds donated to the Cassville R-IV Backpack Program.
Brother Kevin Lingle of the Masonic Lodge presented a check to Kristy Preddy, counselor at Eunice Thomas Elementary School. Both Preddy and Shelley Sparkman, Intermediate School Counselor, coordinate the backpack program for the primary and intermediate students.
The Bright Futures Backpack Program provides nonperishable food items to children in the district that may need food assistance over the weekend. Bright Futures, established at Cassville Schools in 2011, is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to bringing community members together to focus on the success of children.
Thanks to the generous support of the community and the High Twelve Club #616 of Shell Knob this donation was possible.
