HELP US REACH OUR 2012-2013 GOAL

The We’ve Got Your Back program currently serves more than 2,000 children identified as homeless with backpacks filled with essential nutritious food. By the end of the 2012-2013 school year, we hope to expand the program to add 15 new schools, feed 1500 more children and to provide food to a total of 5,000 children on a consistent, reliable basis.

To sponsor a child: $240 or $20 a month for the year. Each backpack provides six meals for the weekend and holds enough food to feed a family of four.
