This time of year is the perfect opportunity to give back. There’s nothing that will warm your heart and soul more than being able to help those who are in need, to ensure they too have food on their plates and the daily necessities we tend to take for granted.  BackPack Beginnings is fortunate to have so many fantastic supporters in Greensboro.
