We are able to purchase food at a reduced rate thanks to Meijer, so your donation of $100.00 will provide a backpack and food to one child each weekend for an entire school year! Any size donation will be appreciated.  Your contribution along with other contributions will assist in feeding food insecure children over the weekend right in your own community.

Click the Donate link to access the secure Paypal account. 

For security purposes, credit cards will only be processed if your credit card billing address and 3 or 4 digit CVV number on the card is provided.
Once you have hit “Donate” at the bottom of the donation page a letter acknowledging your contribution will be mailed. This letter can be used as your receipt for tax purposes.
