Blessings In a Backpack

Blessings In a Backpack is a “neighbor-helping-neighbor” program that is designed to help meet the nutritional needs of children and families.

Each week, volunteers, in cooperation with school officials, distribute backpacks filled with enough non-perishable food for the weekend (six meals) to “at-risk” students.  These students are participants in the government subsidized free or reduced fee hot lunch program.

The goal of the Blessings in a Backpack program is to keep these students from going hungry on the weekends and remove barriers to academic success.

Waterfall Jewelers is proud that our August “Batteries for Charity” Fundraiser helps children and families in the Waterford/Clarkston/Holly areas through this worthwhile program.
