Backpackers to Fight Hunger


In response to a need in our community among our student families, the Pawtucket Backpackers came together to provide supplemental foods to students in need.  Students, who were coming to school hungry and whose families needed a little extra help.
Beginning September 2013 the Pawtucket Backpackers began providing supplemental foods on the weekends to 150 students in our elementary schools.  Word of the available help spread and we soon received requests from our Jr/Middle and Sr. High Schools.  Today, we provide 250 students with weekend assistance. 
Packed in white plastic grocery bags and placed into the backpacks of those in need of a little assistance are two breakfasts, two lunch/dinners and two snacks.  It currently costs $3 - $4 Per bag, per student, per week. 
While we have received generous and heartfelt contributions from the community, administrators, staff, students, family and friends, we do not have enough funds to fulfill the needs through this school year.  It is our hope to keep this program sustainable as long as there is a need and a community willing to help though monetary contributions, foods and/or of service.
We need your help!  From January 13, 2013 through February 14, 2014 the Pawtucket Backpackers will host a fundraiser in our community.  THE POWER OF 1 ~ AND A CARING COMMUNITY. 
We are asking each of our students, staff, family and caring friends to contribute $1.00 to our cause to help sustain the program.  $1.00 will make a difference.  If everyone who cares contributes, we will be able to sustain the Pawtucket Backpacker’s through this school year and provide a base for the following school year.
The Pawtucket Backpackers is discreet and anonymous.  The volunteers do not know who the bags go to.  There is a representative in each school handling the distribution.
When asking for comments from recipients, I’ve heard a number of times; food runs out and we don’t have enough food until the next pay day or my parents wait until we eat before they do.  Now, we can all eat as a family and my parents don’t have to go hungry.
No child should go hungry!!  No family should struggle with no help and no hope!!
The backpackers are working to help those students and families.  Please, if you care and it won’t present financial hardship, consider contributing $1 to the Pawtucket Backpackers and be part of the solution.  As a community, we can make a difference.  We will make a difference in the lives of our students. 
Donations can be dropped off at the office of any school.  Just tell them it is for the Backpackers or, mail your contribution to Pawtucket Backpackers, 286 Main St., Pawtucket, RI  02860
The Pawtucket Backpackers is a non-profit 501(c)(3) in cooperation with the Back to School Celebration of RI.  All contributions are tax deductible.  Please feel free to contact the Pawtucket Backpackers with any questions, comments or concerns at bonolloj@verizon.net
On behalf of our students and families, staff and Pawtucket Backpacker volunteers, thank you for your help and for caring.
