Fighting childhood hungerone backpack at a time
Every week, volunteers meet to prepare and fill the backpacks for distribution to the elementary schools. Volunteers form an assembly line to fill each child’s backpack and group them according to school. Weekly, backpacks are delivered to the individual schools and later distributed by volunteers, students and teachers to smiling and thankful children. In addition, we supply and stock a variety of pantries with several Middle and High Schools. The pantries contain not only food but also hygiene products like shampoo and toothpaste.
The best way to donate is to sponsor a child, a grade or an entire school for ongoing support. While one-time and in-kind donations greatly help, ongoing commitment allows us to focus on the primary goal of getting backpacks to children every week.
