THE REAL DEAL
BACKPACKS OF HOPE PROGRAM
Our Backpacks of Hope Program is now in the Charlotte-Mecklenburg and Cabarrus County School Systems. We receive applications ongoing throughout the school year and we need the support from the community to make this happen continually. This Program provides the meals for the entire weekend for the youth. The School Counselors and Social Workers have informed us that a large portion of these youth are from the homeless population. We also serve the Homeless population when contacted by community organizations identifying the need. We prayerfully ask for your continued support and generosity by reaching out to your churches, businesses, sororities, fraternities, civic, corporate and community groups, etc., to help make this happen.
1 out of 5 youth is faced with the distraction of hunger.
Please join us in our Hunger Relief efforts by Collecting food or sponsoring a Food Drive on our behalf. Food donations, grocery gift cards, and/or financial donations are appreciated. The cost to feed one child is $250.00. We serve approximately 200 children each school year . Consider sponsoring a child for the entire school year.
From our hearts to your hearts, we say thank you for your continued support.
