COMMUNITY PARTNERS

Wyandotte Community Partners

This is the tenth year of operating the Blessings in a Backpack-Wyandotte program for the children in our community. We are currently feeding students throughout our 4 Elementary Schools, Middle and High School.  We would like to expand the program to our three Special Education Schools as well.

  • $140 provides one child food every weekend (6 meals) for an entire school year
  • A full year of funding must be raised in advance to start a new school in the program
  • We are currently feeding 500 students – $50,000 annually is needed to maintain our current program.
  • 59% of all students in Wyandotte qualify for the Blessings in a Backpack program.
  • We hope to eventually expand to all schools in Wyandotte as funding is raised.

Please visit this website monthly to see the progress we are making and for upcoming events.  More volunteers and community partners are needed to expand and maintain our program.  Additional volunteers are needed for ongoing fundraising.

Blessings in a Backpack Portofino River Cruise

Sold Out Once Again

 

It was a perfect summer evening on June 14, 2022, when the Portofino Boat cruised the Detroit River with a sold-out crowd to support Blessings in a Backpack-Wyandotte. Everyone had a wonderful time dancing to the music, enjoying the Taco Bar and raising money to support hunger-insecure children of Wyandotte. We plan on repeating this event in 2023, so look for information in the spring of 2023 and get you tickets early so the boat does not leave the dock without you.
