We hope that your New Year is off to a great start!  For many of us, the start of a new year is a time for reflection and new beginnings. At this time, we often think about changes we want to make and how we can better ourselves and grow for the future. Here at BackPack Beginnings, we are doing just that, and we’re thrilled to announce that our Food BackPack and Food Pantry programs will be expanding starting this month!

Thanks to your support of our imPACK campaign, we are ringing in the New Year by adding the following 6 schools to these programs, which will in turn feed more children in our community.

Our Food BackPack Program will now include:school-bus-+-kids

Erwin Montessori
Guilford Preparatory Academy
Sumner Elementary

Our Food Pantry Program will now include:

Guilford Preparatory Academy
Page High School
Northeast Guilford Middle School
Southern Guilford High School


Our programs wouldn’t be able to grow without your help and support, so THANK YOU and the schools thank you too!

Kenyana Hempshire, Dean of Students, Guilford Preparatory Academy says, “Guilford Preparatory Academy is excited about partnering with BackPack Beginnings. As a result, we have been able to provide additional resources to our students!!  Thank you BackPack Beginnings for your support!!”

We wish you a happy and healthy 2017!
