ensuring Stafford area schools continue to receive healthy emergency backpack meals

for educators to distribute to families in need. Jacob’s Ladder will also continue the SFS

mission to build relationships in the community by conducting community meals in area

neighborhoods. Additionally, Jacob’s Ladder will augment existing SFS capabilities by

Ladder, assisting Jacob’s Ladder in employing its resources within and around Stafford

County. The merging of these two entities allows for greater reach and employment of

their individual resources and allows for continued support for the Stafford community.
