The Optimist Club of Camdenton recently made a generous donation of food items to the Camdenton School District Buddy Pack program.

Buddy Packs go home with approximately 500 children each Friday to students in need in the Camdenton School District’s Dogwood, Hawthorn, Hurricane Deck, Osage Beach Elementary and Oak Ridge Intermediate schools, as well as schools in Macks Creek and Climax Springs.

This program would not be as successful without community support and assistance. More information about the Buddy Pack program can be found at www.sharefoodbringhope.org or contact Joi Dickemann at the Camdenton School District 573-346-9243.
