Odyssey’s 15th Annual Holiday Outreach Benefiting Blessings in a Backpack
It is that special time of year when our families come together to celebrate the holidays. As we enjoy the festivities, we also want to take a moment to be reminded of how blessed we are. Please join us as we recognize and support another great charity that makes a difference locally.
Blessings in a Backpack is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization that provides weekend food for kids who are most in need in local elementary and middle schools. The kids receive breakfast and lunch during the school week but are at risk of going hungry on the weekends. Most importantly, the results show their grades, attendance, and participation in class all improve.
Our combined donations will help provide food to kids in need right here in our local community. $2.50/weekend or about $100 per school year offers enough sustenance for a child’s entire 38-weekends this school year. There are approximately 200 kids in the local programs.
Thank you for your support of Blessings in a Backpack. You will receive an email receipt for your tax-deductible donation. Odyssey wishes you and your family a wonderful holiday season!
