Backpack Buddies is back for the 2022-2023 school year! Each week we are delivering 30 bags to Cary Reynolds Elementary School in Brookhaven for students experiencing food insecurity. As you may have seen in local media, Backpack Buddies of Metro Atlanta is now providing the food for our backpacks. Therefore we are no longer in need of food donations for this program. We do, however, need volunteers to pack and deliver the bags each week. Bags get delivered to the school on Wednesday mornings but the packing can be worked around the schedule of the packers. With 2-3 individuals working together, a week’s worth of packing can be accomplished in well under an hour. This is an ideal volunteer opportunity for a family or small group. If you would like to volunteer for packing and/or delivery, please visit the Signup Genius links below.
