Huskie PowerPacks

Huskie PowerPacks is a joint effort between Heartland Community Schools, Henderson Food Mart, Henderson MB Church, Bethesda Mennonite Church and local families to provide supplemental weekend food assistance for families in the communities of Bradshaw and Henderson.

Huskie PowerPacks has three main goals:

1.  To meet the needs of families by providing supplemental weekend food assistance.

2.  To decrease stigmas of needing help in our communities.

3.  To be an entry point to help build resources for families.
