Professional Athletes, Teams, Leagues or Events

Blessings in a Backpack works with professional and collegiate athletes, teams, leagues, and events throughout the country to provide hunger-free weekends to children living with food insecurity. These relationships help expand awareness of childhood hunger and Blessings in a Backpack’s work, provide support for weekend nutrition, and offer athletes the opportunity to connect with their community.

These unique relationships are managed by Blessings in aBackpack’s Director of Athletic Partnerships. These donors specify what school or community they want to support. Blessings in a Backpack’s athletic partnership team works with sports agent offices, foundation management firms, and public relations agencies to develop these relationships.

If you have an opportunity in the athletic industry that you would like to pursue, please contact your program manager, and we can work together to identify the proper steps forward.
