Host a fundraiser or sponsor a child

Have a group that would like to make a difference by hosting a fundraiser? Contact us and we can provide ideas, guidelines and anything else you might need to get your fundraiser off the ground. In the past, groups have held food drives, sponsored a child or school and planned their own fundraisers for our program. All ideas are welcome and very much appreciated!

Make a food donation

Blessings in a Backpack is in need of food items that are ready to eat and easy to prepare.  We have developed a list of top food donation needs:  

Box of Single Serving Oatmeal Packs

Single Serving Cereal Boxes

Macaroni and Cheese

Individual Ravioli or spaghettios

Ramen Noodles

Canned Tuna

Canned Chicken

Individual Fruit Cups

Because we have established relationships with local grocers, often financial donations allow us to purchase more food at an advantageous price than the average donor.  Please consider a financial donation if your item is not included on the above list.
