Action: Support the Backpack 68 Program


There are 3,000 Boston Public School Children that are homeless. There are 68 hours between the time a young person leaves school on Friday and the start of classes Monday morning.

With the help of Food donations we will ensure children are able to fill a back pack and bring food home to their family over the weekend.

We can all help!! Click to sign up to help fill backpacks with food for our kids or donate your time!
