Each Friday of the school year, Chapin United Methodist Women and Chapin Sunrise Rotary members provide 40 students at Chapin Elementary ,Chapin Intermediate and Chapin High with weekend Snack Packs.  These students are identified by social workers at the schools as needing help. Many are homeless; others are free/reduced lunch students who do not get enough to eat at home over the weekends.Studies show that these weekend Snack Packs can reduce the number of Monday-morning school nurse’s office visits and even improve classroom attention, grades and test scores.
