BENEFITING: BLESSINGS IN A BACKPACK INC
Can you imagine what it must be like to be a hungry child, to wonder where your next meal is coming from, or if it will come at all? Blessings in a Backpack, Frederick MD provides weekend backpacks of food to local children who depend on Free And Reduced Meals in school as their primary source of nutrition, Monday-Friday. But, "What do they do on the weekends?" Thanks to the generosity of so many wonderful donors, we currently feed 1100 children at 10 local schools each weekend. At our most highly impacted school, Waverley Elementary, over 87% of the children are living at or below the poverty level. They suffer from food insecurity when school meals are unavailable. Sadly, there are over 400 children that we currently cannot afford to feed. But YOU can help! It costs only $100 to feed one child each weekend for an entire school year. Please give what you can and if you are able, please sponsor one or more children. The more money we raise, the more children we can feed. Whatever you can do to help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for caring and for your willingness to join the fight against childhood hunger. Please take a few minutes to view the attached video.
