END Weekend HUNGER!
Thousands of school kids in Douglas County, CO go hungry every weekend. Help us provide them with enough to eat when school is not in session.
The mission of Backpack Society is to make hunger-free weekends in Douglas County, CO a reality for school children by providing access to non-perishable, easy-to-prepare food. This will help to ensure they get enough to eat on weekends when they can’t depend on school meals to avoid hunger.
During this time of extended school closures, we have shifted our focus from just weekend backpacks to boxes of food for Douglas County students and their families.
We need your support!
