Communities In Schools of the Tecumseh Area, CISTA, would like to thank all the organizations and individuals that support CISTA and the Friday Food Pack program, FFP. Over 35 volunteers from the Tecumseh Arbor of Gleaner Life Insurance Society, Kiwanis Club of Tecumseh, Girl Scout Troop 60269, CISTA Board and staff, and the community were able to pack 277 FFPs in under an hour!FFPs are weekly nutritional supplements given to identified students for the school year, generally consisting of one drink and five to six snacks.
