Why not enjoy yourself this summer while supporting BackPack Beginnings? By visiting the local businesses below, you will help support our mission: To provide children in need with nutritious food, comfort items or certain basic necessities through the use of backpacks and other efficient means of delivery. The donations from these local business givebacks will go a long way- as you can see above, over 93% of all BPB funds directly goes to helping children. The other 7% or less helps pays our utility bills, mailings, insurance, etc. That is because BPB is a 100% volunteer organization! We love what we do… helping the children of our community who are in-need…one backpack at a time!!
