Help Fill Backpacks with Food

Every day the children in our Day Treatment Program are sent home with an afternoon snack, and every Friday we send home a backpack full of food for the weekend. We are looking for volunteers to help fill these backpacks! This is a great project for small groups (no more than four people) or individuals. All volunteers must be age 13 or older, and anyone under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult. 

Please sign up for your entire group at once (or as an individual if you will be volunteering alone) using the form below. We ask that backpacks be filled on Thursdays at 10 a.m. You can expect the project to take approximately an hour. 

If you have any questions before signing up, please reach out to Christina Ocana-Wilson at Once signed up, you will get an email confirmation with more details from Christina.

Thank you for your help ensuring the children we serve have plenty of food to eat all weekend long!
