Students across the country this weekend will bring home backpacks filled not just with textbooks, but with plenty of food to carry them through to Monday. This is due to the efforts of Blessings in a Backpack.
On September 18, 2014, mayors across the country joined forces with local Blessings in a Backpack volunteers in packing bags full of food for children as part of Blessings in a Backpack Day.
Through serving on the board of the PGA Tour Wives Association, an organization that has given back more than $5 million over the past 25 years, I have had the opportunity to work with numerous charities across the country while we traveled on the PGA Tour. One of those nonprofit organizations, Blessings in a Backpack, delivered a powerful and simple answer to our question.
