Put Food Under the Tree this Christmas

Donate to Backpack Brigade

This Christmas, some kids aren’t asking Santa for toys, or the new electronic game, they are asking him for food. Many of the 3,600 students identified as homeless in the Seattle Public School District eat only at school through the free and reduced lunch program. When Friday comes and they leave school, they lose access to food for the whole weekend. That’s where we come in. Providing over 850 weekend hunger bags to 24 schools every weekend of the school year, we are there to feed those hungry kids, filling empty bellies one weekend at a time.

But we need your help! Food costs are rising, transportation costs more, and there are more kids in need. We need your financial support!

A $7 donation provides a student with a food-bag for one weekend, which includes 7 meals, 4 snacks and a whole lot of love!!

A $260 donation provides a student with a full belly every weekend for the whole school year!

In your holiday giving, please consider Backpack Brigade! And please spread the word. The way community comes together at this special season, the impact can last all year!
