Giving Tuesday Recap: Thank You for Feeding 121 Kids for One School Year

On Giving Tuesday, many people and organizations gave back to the kids this weekend in the Frederick County community! Our campaign raised $15,735, exceeding our $12,000 goal — which will help feed 121 kids for one whole school year!

Blessings in a Backpack Frederick Chapter is so blessed to have the support from those who donated and CyberPros, who committed to a $4,000 match. Thank you from the bottom of our backpacks!

If you missed making a donation on Giving Tuesday and would like to still give, there are many ways to do so. Click here!

A message from National Blessings Board Chair

Thanks to your generosity, Blessings in a Backpack surpassed its goal and raised $153,645 this year on Giving Tuesday. That means 1,024 more children can go an entire school year knowing they won’t spend their weekends hungry.

There is truly no better gift. But you don’t have to take it from me.

Thank you letter

“Thank you for kindly feeding millions of thousands of kids. I am really grateful for all your doings. I am very happy that you are feeding us. Each of you are very good and helpful. Everyone appreciates you gratefully. I hope you will have the greatest year ever. Thank you so much! Sincerely, one of your grateful, fed kids!”

The need to feed kids becomes even greater as the long holiday break approaches. But because of your generosity on Giving Tuesday, hundreds more children will feel the joy of the season as they will not worry about going hungry over the weekend.

Thank you for helping to let kids be kids during the most wonderful time of the year. I wish you all the best this holiday season.
