Three Schoolcraft businesses this year joined together to collect donations for the Schoolcraft Friday Pack program.

The program, started more than 10 years ago, provides students in need with food for weekends, with filled packs placed in lockers on Friday mornings before school starts.

J. Rettenmaier USA, On Purpose Branding and Dave Rice Group collected items for the packs. Employees contributed more than $5,000 to add needed items to the packs.

Those interested in learning more about this program or wishing to donate may call the Schoolcraft Eagle’s Nest at 269-488-5847 or email All monetary and non-perishable food donations are welcome.
