Volunteer for Backpack Buddies
Brownie Junior Cadette Senior Ambassador
Backpack Buddies is a weekend meals program for elementary students. The backpack (clear sealed bag) provides a healthy breakfast, lunch and snack for the weekend. Scouts can work in our volunteer center to place juice/milk boxes, cereal, snack, canned vegetable, and an entrée in a bag. The bag then goes in a Second Harvest box for distribution to participating schools. Each week close to 4,000 bags must be constructed.
When? Monday-Friday, 52 weeks a year. Backpack packing is done September-April
Cost Per Girl: N/A
