STUDENTS HELPING WITH BLESSING IN A BACKPACK!

BLESSINGS IN A BACKPACK


backpack

The Blessings in a Backpack program steps-up by feeding children on the weekend. Every Friday afternoon, children receive backpacks filled with kid-friendly, ready-to-eat items. Students return every Monday morning with an empty backpack, a full stomach, and an eager mind. In schools with Blessings in a Backpack programs, test scores, reading skills, positive behavior, general health, and attendance have improved dramatically as a result of children getting the nourishment they need. Veterans Park Academy for the Arts is currently feeding approximately 65 students weekly and hopes to increase the number of recipients to 100 within the next six months.
