BackPack Buddies Delivery Project
Because Hunger Doesn't Take A Break On The Weekends
We feed kids in need, promote responsible fatherhood and help families in crisis.
WHO IT BENEFITS: The Kids of the BackPack Buddies Program.
WHAT: We need a delivery van to transport approximately 700 food bags monthly, over 6,000 bags yearly. The van would also be used to purchase the food and supplies prior to packing. We would like to raise funds to purchase a Nissan High Roof 2500 Delivery Van or similar.
WHERE: Our new van will transport buddy bags all over Shelby County. The distances traveled to reach some of schools require a dependable delivery van that could handle the loads and the miles. It would make it much easier to deliver several weeks ahead to our outer lying schools.
WHEN: Our agency would utilize the delivery van for the entire year but the heavy usage would be during the ten-month school year.
HOW: We are hoping that the community can help play a role in helping us raise awareness of our vehicle need through contacting dealerships, hosting fundraising events and brainstorming other ideas that would help us achieve this need.
