Fighting childhood hunger

one backpack at a time

HowItWorks

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.

MakeADonation

The best way to donate is to sponsor a child, 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.
