Blessings in Backpack

What is Blessings in a Backpack? Blessings in a Backpack is a national not for profit organization that provides nutritious food for impoverished elementary school children to cover the gap between school lunches and the weekend. Backpacks or cinch sacks are packed with food and sent home with the children every Friday.

The Waukesha County Chapter started in 2012 and currently serves 1,200 students at five elementary schools in Waukesha.

 

Starting June 1, New Berlin Public Library will be collecting NEW backpacks and cinch sacks to donate to the Waukesha County Blessings in a Backpack program. Backpacks and cinch sacks can be dropped off in the barrel by the Circulation Desk, or any of the Reference Desks.

For more information on the program, please visit:
