Bring Joy Back to Friday Afternoons
Become a Monthly Donor
For the kids we serve, Fridays are hard. Children who rely on school hot meal programs often face the prospect of a weekend without meals. When you join The Friday Club you are rallying alongside over 700 other passionate monthly donors who help us deliver thousands of bags of food to hungry kids every Friday.
Who Am I Helping?
When you join The Friday Club and give monthly, you’re feeding a hungry child who is counting on Backpack Buddies for the meals and snacks they need this weekend
“The week before payday, I usually run out of food. It’s so hard when Chris tells me that he’s so hungry and I have to explain to him that payday is coming soon.”
“Many days there wasn’t enough food for all of us, so I wouldn’t eat so that my kids could. There was a point when they were afraid to ask for a snack or a drink because they weren’t sure if we had any food at home for them.”
“Having a backpack of food every weekend takes a huge weight off of both the child and their parents when they don’t have to worry about where their next meal is coming from.”
“When I don’t have enough food to feed my kids, it’s very hard. The kids can tell when I’m stressed about money and food—I try not to show it but they pick up on it from me and they worry.”
