Kids Helping Kids
Backpack Buddies has one goal: to fill the weekend hunger gap for children who rely on school meal programs Monday to Friday.
We do this by connecting kids from different backgrounds in order to get buddy students involved and at the same time fill the need that exists with recipient students in our community. Backpack Buddies is founded on the belief that in order for kids to feel compassion and empathy, they need to understand and learn about the issues faced by others and then to be provided with tangible opportunities to actually help and be part of the solution. #kidshelpingkids
