Teller Back Pack Drive Has Started

Four years ago, teachers and parents at Teller Elementary School identified a need in their community and began building the Teller Backpack Friends program.

Since then they have partnered with Congress Park Neighbors, Inc, Teller Elementary PTA, and Food Bank of the Rockies and grown the program to feed more than 80 people.

You can help by donating to Congress Park Neighbors Teller Back Pack Pay Pal site.
