Annual Backpack Brigade Benefiting Blessings in a Backpack – Pinellas County
Blessings in a Backpack is a program that mobilizes communities, individuals, and resources to provide food on the weekends for elementary school children across America who might otherwise go hungry. Each year it never ceases to amaze us that this program continues to grow.
More and more local children are in need of food on the weekends while they are not in school. Blessings in a Backpack – Pinellas County, the local chapter of the program, provides a minimum of six items in every bag they send home. Foods are shelf stable, kid friendly and easy to prepare.
The Backpack Brigade Event, benefiting Blessings in a Backpack -Pinellas County, is a family friendly event. SPARK 5, Inc’s goal is collect new backpacks and monetary donations to help run the program and fill the food pantry for the upcoming school year. The event typically will have Live Music, raffle prizes or a silent auction and more! We hope to see you there as we continue to grow this event each year. There are over 300 children on the program and every donation counts with this event – we hope you will join us!
