Blessings in a Backpack is a non profit that currently feeds 2500 Frederick County schoolchildren a year by providing food on the weekends and on school breaks to students that rely on school meals as their primary source of nutrition.

One of our core values at the YMCA is caring: to demonstrate a sincere concern for others, their needs and well-being. BIAB’s mission is to mobilize the local community, individuals and resources to help provide food locally to schoolchildren while raising awareness about childhood hunger. Combining the YMCA’s mission and core values, with BIAB’s dedication to end childhood hunger, is a powerful union that invites you to have an impact right here right now.

Please consider donation to this food drive and make a difference right in your backyard.
