Celebrating 20 years of independence

New York State Correctional Officers & Police Benevolent Association, Inc.

Recently, members from the Five Points Correctional Facility attended the Seneca Falls School board meeting and presented the board president with a check for $3,000. The monies will be used to supplement the district’s Back Pack program. This program provides food-insecure children in the Seneca Falls Central School District with hunger relief during the weekends and extended breaks from school. The program started with less than 40 children and now serves 115 children each week. The research has shown that good nutrition is critical to good health and success at school. Children who do not get enough to eat often have trouble concentrating, have lower math and ELA scores, have difficulty interacting with peers, have trouble finishing tests on time and have lower graduation rates.
