Backpack Blessings, the organization that supplies the food for our H.A.K. Pak Program, is in desperate need of donations. Currently, they send home food for 400 children each week. Hughes Academy takes almost 20% of this. For the month of October, we are collecting cans of hearty soups (anything with a pop-top). Any and all donations are much appreciated.
