We are able to purchase food at a reduced rate thanks to Meijer, so your donation of $155.00 will provide a backpack and food to one child each weekend for an entire school year! Any size donation will be appreciated. Your contribution along with other contributions will assist in feeding food insecure children over the weekend right in your own community.
For many of the programs in southeastern Michigan the Community Foundation of Greater Rochester manages the Blessings in a Backpack Component funds for participating communities. Through the association with the Community Foundation of Greater Rochester, all donations are tax deductible. This allows monies donated for local programs to remain within the State of Michigan.
