Weekend Backpack Sponsor

The Weekend Backpack program addresses food insecurity for more than 1,200 elementary school children in Schenectady County by providing a reliable source of nutritious food to children each Friday during the school year. 

We have expanded now from the City of Schenectady to also reach children and families in the Duanesburg, Mohonasen, Schalmont and Scotia-Glenville school districts.  You may give to help where it's needed most or direct your gift to help kids in the school district of your choice.

“SEFCU is a proud sponsor of this program because children should never wonder where their next meal is coming from,” said Michael J. Castellana, SEFCU president, and CEO. “Until we are able to permanently eradicate hunger, the weekend backpack program is critical for many and I urge your support.”
