Summer Bag Delivery
We are still in need of volunteers to deliver weekend bags every Friday at 10:30am. Please use this link to see available dates and locations.
Fall Volunteer Sign Ups
Thank you for volunteering to help us pack bags! We pack from 7:00-8:00 pm at 96 Werz Industrial Blvd. on each packing night. If you are signing up as a group, please make sure to sign up each individual person so that Backpack Buddies can keep accurate records of volunteers. The sign up sheet is for middle school aged children through adults, but please feel free to bring your younger children along to help. We are incredibly blessed to have so many people wanting to serve each year. In order to allow everyone an opportunity, please only choose two dates each semester for your group. Thank you in advance for serving with us!
If you need to cancel or change your day to help, please contact Nicole McNutt at firstname.lastname@example.org to help make those changes.
We need volunteers to help deliver bags each week during the school year. Drivers will be responsible for picking up bags at Backpack Buddies on Wednesday or Thursday and delivering them to the assigned school by Friday at noon.
We also need volunteers to deliver the larger break bags prior to a week long school holiday. Drivers will be responsible for picking up bags at Backpack Buddies on Tuesday and delivered to the assigned school by Wednesday at noon.
If you do not feel like you can commit to delivering bags weekly, we are always looking for people to “sub” for our regular drivers.
If you are interested in helping with any of these delivery options please email Lori Burnett at email@example.com
Prep for Packing Bags
We need a team of volunteers to help us prep for our Tuesday night packing days during the school year. We meet every other Thursday morning, beginning August 15th from 9:00-10:00 am to set up for our evening packing. If you are interested in being on this team, please email Lori at firstname.lastname@example.org
Host a Food Drive
We would love for you to collect food items for us. You have greater reach into our community resources and would love for you to help us in this way. We have experienced greater success when we "drive" for one food item at a time, for example "Juice Box January". See our food list by clicking HERE to see what items we use on a weekly basis.
