GLANDORF — A benefit concert this Saturday, March 15, will be held to raise money for the KNAPsack program in Ottawa Elementary

Putnam County KNAPsack is hosting the concert featuring Nashville Crush from 8 p.m. to midnight in St. John’s Parish Hall Center (the old Glandorf gymnasium.) The admission is $10. Tickets are only available at the door. You must be 21 to enter.

The event is BYOB with plastic and cans. No glass is allowed.

The Ottawa Elementary PTO will be selling concessions during the event. There will be no sale of alcohol.

KNAPsack is a new program at Ottawa for children in grades 1-5. The purpose of the program is to provide weekend meals for eligible children one time a month.

If a family qualifies for free or reduced lunches, their children are automatically qualified for KNAP Sack.

The sacks are delivered to the school on the third Friday of each month during the school year. School personnel place the white plastic bags in the children’s back packs to bring home.

The food in the bags is purchased from West Ohio Food Bank in Lima. Each bag containes two breakfasts, two lunches, two dinners, two snacks, two fruits and two juice items.

Becky Leader, one of the coordinators of the program, said they currently serve 48 children at Ottawa Elementary.

‘We plan to expand next year and offer the program to students in grades one through eight,” she said.

Nashville Crush presents a perfect balance of Country and Rock music. Mix that with their high energy, award winning stage show and you have something that pleases all ages of people from all backgrounds imaginable.
