Soroptimist International of Eel River Valley President Jo Anne Center, right, recently presented a $3,000 check to Kay Chapman, left, counselor for the Fortuna Elementary School District, for the school district’s weekend backpack program. Chapman said that with this donation, along with donations from other service organizations, 80 or more Eel River Valley students will now be able to receive food each weekend throughout the year. Soroptimists of Eel River Valley meet in Fortuna, September through June, at St. Francis’ Episcopal Church the first three Wednesdays of each month from 8 to 9 a.m. For more information, visit www.sieelrivervalley@soroptimist.org.
