Did You Know?

We believe every child deserves to be comforted. Our Comfort BackPacks offer care, comfort and basic necessities for children during traumatic situations. Here are a few facts about our Comfort BackPack Program.BPB Studio blue comfort NBG

  •  We work with 21 child service agencies. See list.
  • 1,850 children received comfort backpacks from BPB last year and we anticipate serving over 2,100 this year.
  • We provide comfort backpacks to children in Guilford County, Alamance County, and Forsyth County.
  • Every comfort backpack contains at least 18 items including school supplies, hygiene products, a toy, book, stuffed animal, and blanket.
  • It costs BPB $20 to purchase the backpacks and all items included in them, although the value of the completed backpacks is $50-$75.
  • Story from one of the social workers:  “I had been in a meeting all day with a family that a police officer found living in their car. I was trying to place them, and your Comfort BackPacks were arriving at the perfect time for the children.”
