Our January project will be benefitting Blessings In a Backpack, an organization that sends food home with students over the weekends. Children who receive government funded meals at school may not have access to healthy meals on the weekends. This organization ensures that students are well-fed and ready to learn.
We will be making cards with words of encouragement to be sent home in each backpack. We will also be raising money as a donation to feed a child throughout the school year. **As little as $100 feeds one child on the weekends for a 38-week school year.**
