DONATE YOUR TIME
We offer several opportunities for volunteers and appreciate any time that you could spend helping feed hungry kids in southwest Florida. Volunteer duties include sorting food and stuffing backpacks each week. Interested in donating your time? Fill out a volunteer interest form!
If you are a manufacturer, distributor or retailer of backpacks or drawstring bags and would like to donate new or unsold backpacks to Blessings in a Backpack Corporate Headquarters, please email Lisa or call (800) 872-4366, ext. 101. Unfortunately, we cannot accept satchels, roller bags, messenger bags or clear or mesh backpacks.
DONATE PHYSICAL RESOURCES
If you’re not in the food or backpack industry, you can still help us fight hunger in your community by donating resources. If you can drive, have a truck and/or van that can be used for deliveries, have a forklift that we can borrow, or if you have employees who are looking for a way to make a difference, we’d love to hear from you! Contact Cecilia.
Since we are able to purchase food at a reduced rate, a donation of $100 will provide a backpack to one child each weekend for an entire school year! All money donated is tax deductible.
