The First United Methodist Church Backpack Program recently received a donation from the Twin Lakes Future Fund in the amount of $1,500. The program provides backpacks filled with food for children who may not have enough food at home for weekend meals.

Twin Lakes Future Fund is a component of the Twin Lakes Community Foundation, and its grant awards support the four ASPIRE goals of education, health, family, and community. Twin Lakes Future Fund engages young adults of all financial means in philanthropy. Its goals are to build a dynamic group of young adult leaders who dedicate and share their talents, insights and zeal to educate and increase awareness of local needs to improve the quality of life, and make their community a better place to live.

Since it was started in 2012, Twin Lakes Future Fund has granted nearly $20,000 to local non-profits.
