Thank you for your generosity. Your donation of just $80 will provide a backpack to one child each weekend for an entire 38 week school year! All money donated is tax deductible since we are a 501(c)3 organization. Each donation will receive a tax-deductible letter in the mail within 4 - 6 weeks.

100% of donations go directly to feeding the kids - all administrative costs for the organization are covered by a generous donor. This means all of the money donated will go directly towards helping the kids; it won’t be diluted by fees, administrative costs, etc.
