WATERTOWN, New York (WWNY) - It’s called a Reverse Advent Calendar, and it benefits the South Jefferson backpack program.

Nellie Mathous and Betsy Roberts are members of the South Jeff class of 1982, which is organizing the drive. Instead of a normal advent calendar where you receive something, with this one, you give something.

Watch the video for their interview on 7 News This Morning.

The idea is to donate one item each day through December 9. There’s a list on the South Jeff backpack program Facebook page. The items can be dropped off at Jreck Subs in Adams.

There will also be a food drive at Sam’s Club and Walmart from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday, November 25.

You can call 315-783-1535 for more information.
