Blessings In A Backpack Inc
Blessings in a Backpack is our longstanding partner that provides kids in need with food on the weekends. During the COVID-19 crisis, they have been working with our local programs to ensure students who normally receive backpacks on the weekends are still able to receive food while school is not in session. Programs are going above and beyond to provide meals to students and entire families impacted by this crisis.
