BLESSINGS IN A BACKPACK
For every purchase you make at ALIKE, we give a portion to Blessings in a Backpack, mobilizing communities, individuals, and resources to provide food on the weekends for elementary school children across America who might otherwise go hungry. During the schoolweek children can receive food at their school through government programs, however on the weekends many are left to go without. Blessings in a Backpack looks to help end hunger for the 13 million children at risk right here in the United States.
Watch this video to learn more about their program and how you can help.
Creating the Note Cards that are inserted in the backpacks is a great way to get your kids involved at mostly any age level. You can do this right at home and spread joy and encouragement to the recipients of the backpack. See link below for more info along with a printable template.

Let us know how you got involved! We'd love to hear from you or join you at a volunteer opportunity.
Who will feed the kids this weekend?
