The Bucyrus Backpack Program will hold a raffle for an autographed Jerry Lucas basketball during the boys home basketball games against Wynford Friday, Feb. 19.
Representatives from the Backpack Program will be on-hand selling raffle tickets through the third quarter of the varsity game. Tickets are $1 each or 6 for $5.
“We greatly appreciate any support the local community can provide to help us continue this important program,” Backpack Program Board President Lorie Pennington said. “The need for weekend meals continues to be strong, and we want to make sure every student in need is served.”
The Backpack Program serves more than 100 Bucyrus City School District students. Each Friday, eligible students receive food to help them stay fed throughout the weekend.
