How You Can Help

Donate Funds …

This is one of the best ways for individuals and organizations to help children in need in our community.

Small Donations Make a Huge Difference!

Any amount helps the program and can add up quick with everyone’s help. Around $2.50 feeds one child for an entire weekend! Yep – All the nutritional needs for 2 days in one bag.

Volunteer …

We prepare backpacks for the children every week. We can always use help with this process! We pack bags on Wednesdays, 9:30 a.m. at the Snack in a Backpack Headquarters located at 2460 East 1st St, Unit C-7 in downtown Blue Ridge. We are in the building where the Amish store used to be and where Pete’s Place restaurant is now. This is a fun way to get involved and get to know the people who really help pull this program together.

We also have a need for deliverers of the food to the local schools. Delivery teams come once a month to deliver bags to one of the eight schools in our program.

Fundraisers and Events are a fun way to help from time to time and we welcome all! This is a great way to get out and meet the community and support Snack at the same time! We currently need help with these upcoming events:
