Blessings in a Backpack Waukesha County Chapter Hosts Volunteer Event
On Saturday, May 20, the Blessings in a Backpack Waukesha County Chapter in Wisconsin came together with community volunteers to fill 3,000 backpacks with kid-friendly, shelf-stable, and nutritious weekend food for students in the area.
On the last day of school, Waukesha County students in need will receive the extra backpack full of supplemental food to take home. The event was sponsored by real estate and investment management services company JLL and took place outside the company’s offices at 20800 Swenson Drive.
It is estimated that more than 15,000 Waukesha children under the age of 17 struggle with food insecurity over the weekends.
