What We Do

Blessings in a Backpack provides backpacks full of food each weekend for the entire school year for elementary age children across the country who would otherwise not be properly nourished. The program is currently in 391 schools nationwide. I (Tracy Brown) have adopted Huntingtowne Farms Elementary as the first Charlotte area Blessings in a Backpack school. We are currently serving 51 of that school's most needy (primarily homeless) children.

Interesting Info

This is truly a grassroots operation. We saw a need at a neighborhood school where my daughter and I were volunteering and we decided to get involved!
We sent letters and emails to friends and family and starting getting donations for food and volunteers to help stuff the backpacks.
Temple Israel which partners with the school got on board to help with marketing, fundraising and support
