• How it Works

    Every week, volunteers meet to organize food and backpacks for processing. They form an assembly line to fill each child's backpack and group them according to school. On Fridays, volunteers deliver backpacks to each school. Then, teachers distribute them to smiling and thankful children.

  • Make Donations

    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.

    We need to raise $224,000.
