Children start school year right

Thank you, Homer community. Because of your generosity more than 86 children, clients of the Homer Community Food Pantry,  started their  school  year  ready to learn.  They went to school with new  backpacks filled with school supplies and the knowledge that their community supports them with their education.  
The  Omnicron Chapter of Delta Kappa Gamma wishes to thank all those folks who dug into their wallets and filled the donation container at Ulmer’s True Value. Special kudos to the local service groups, the Lions Club, the Rotary Club of Homer Downtown and the Homer Community Food Pantry, along with Linda Munns, Nancy Wise, Milli Martin, Peg Fields, Janet Fink and several anonymous donors  for their monetary contributions.
Thank you to the members of the  Faith Lutheran, Christian Community, Homer United Methodist and Glacier View Baptist churches who stuffed the collection boxes to the brim with backpacks and supplies. Save-U-More’s assistance with the purchasing of backpacks and Ulmer’s provision of space for our donation receptacle were instrumental in DKG’s Back to School Supplies Project’s success.
A special shout-out goes to Melinda Mutch, Jan O’Meara and Betty Hunter of the Rotary Club of Homer Downtown,  Janet Fink and Dave Ford who joined our members in assembling the backpacks, to West Homer Elementary School for providing the room usage for packing the backpacks and to Linda Munns for her social media efforts.  
This collaborative effort brought a lot of smiles to many children’s faces and helped them start the school year off on a positive note.
With gratitude,
