A Message From the CEO

May 20, 2014

Happy Tuesday Blessings Friends!

 I have some very exciting news to share with you. Blessings in a Backpack is honored to be featured on CNN’s Impact Your World series – a special segment that highlights ways in which people around the world are making a difference around the world.

 The segment showcases the Blessings in a Backpack program at Grand Avenue Primary Learning Center program in Orlando, one of the five schools supported by the Kate and Justin Rose Foundation. The Roses now feed over 1,500 students every weekend of the school year. The mission of the Kate and Justin Rose Foundation is to nurture the children from the inside out. In addition to nutritional education and awareness, it’s to provide them opportunities to expand their horizons – including students’ visit to the Arnold Palmer Invitational, also featured in the CNN story.
