A Donor’s Story

“When I saw Backpack Buddies, my soul wept.”

I was raised in a home that struggled. My mom was a single mother who struggled with alcohol addiction and at times became violent. I know firsthand what it’s like to go to school with nothing but a macaroni meat sandwich that no one wants or likes.

One of my key acts of love is to feed others. I love to cook, so to nourish children through Backpack Buddies is an acceleration of that love. For a child living in poverty, having food set aside that’s just for them can be life-changing.

It is important for me to be able to feed kids right here in my own community. I love knowing that what I donate has a tangible, immediate impact on a child’s life.
