This donation means a lot to Jackson, but it’s going to mean much more to the kids who will be receiving this donation. Blessing In A Backpack is non-profit organization which provides free meals for school children who are fed by the free and reduced meal program at school. They provide these children with meals during the weekends when they aren’t at school. This donation will help feed thousands of children who at risk of going hungry during the weekends.
