The program would not be possible without the assistance of our community volunteers who provide food, volunteers to pack, and/or funding. If you or your organizations are interested in helping with the Backpack Buddies program consider doing one or more of the following:
Please click HERE if you'd like to join one of our packing parties! This is a great way to engage with our team, but also a great team building tool for any organization!
If you would like to be part of our bag delivery team taking bags to the schools on Thursday or Friday mornings, click HERE.
Host a food drive - We would love for you to collect food items for us. We have experienced greater success when we "drive" for one food item at a time, for example "Juice Box January".
Sponsor a Backpack Buddies Student - Your donation of $20 a month for a year will provide weekend meals and snacks for one child. Checks may be mailed to:
BackPack Buddies, c/o Paula Womack, Cartersville City Schools, POB 3310, Cartersville, GA 30120.
Any monies donated are split equally between the city and county school systems to ensure that ALL children in Bartow County are served.
