Blessings in a Backpack Holly was started in November 2014 for the children attending Holly Area Schools. The program is now in the process of sending backpacks of food home every weekend at all four of the Elementary Schools in the Holly Area School District. This program is a community-based program and is run completely by volunteers to improve the quality of life for over 1,500 “hunger-insecure” children in the Holly area.
Fundraising is on-going to continue and expand the program to all the children in our community that are hungry on the weekends. $140 provides food for one child every weekend throughout the school year. Thanks to our generous family, friends, neighbors, and community partners, this year we have been able to offer the program to all our elementary schools.
We are now providing food to over 350 children each weekend and must raise $38,500-$40,000 each year to allow us to keep offering this critical program.
Golfing for Backpacks
Thank you for considering participating in the Seventh Annual Golfing Fore! Backpacks for the Holly community. This is our signature event to raise funds to provide food for hungry school children during the weekends. We are at a different location this year. Join us at Fenton Farms Golf Club on Saturday, September 17, 2022, for a Shotgun Scramble. Tee off is 9 am.
There are many other opportunities for you to participate; become a sponsor, attend dinner, or donate. With your support, proceeds from this event will benefit the Blessings in a Backpack program for the school age children within the Holly community. Click here for Golf Brochure.
