Backpack Packing Age 6 and Up Saturdays


Event Description:

The Backpack Program provides a backpack full of nutritious, ready to eat or easy to prepare foods that is sent home on weekends and holidays when school meals are not available. 


Please note that one spot = one person.  If you have a family, each adult and each child must be scheduled.  Volunteers help us pack the backpacks that will then get distributed to the students thru the school system.  Because the food is all purchased and we do not rely on donations, backpack packing is done on a schedule around the arrival of our food orders, the flow of the number of backpacks being sent out and our staff schedule.  PLEASE NOTE THAT IS DOES TAKE A MIN. OF 10 VOLUNTEERS TO PACK.  IF YOU SCHEDULE AND DO NOT SHOW, THE SYSTEM WILL REMOVE YOU FROM ANY UPCOMING SCHEDULED DATES.

  • Volunteers are provided bottled water.  No food, drinks, gum, headphones are permitted.  We do not allow cell phone use during the volunteer shift.
