The mission of the charity Blessings in a Backpack is “to ensure impoverished elementary school children are fed on the weekends throughout the school year." Blessings in a Backpack fulfills this mission by providing a backpack filled with food for the weekend for each eligible student. I am raising money to start this program at Propel McKeesport. The cost per student per school year is $100. I need to raise $2,500 (the cost of feeding 50 children for one semester) to begin the program at Propel. As I am able to raise more money, we will open the program to more children. There are currently over 300 children at Propel eligible for the backpack. Please consider donating - 100% of the money you donate goes directly to providing food for the students. Thank you!
