How to Help

We are not a government organization and rely solely on contributions from our community and nonprofit grants funding, when available.

Donate – You can donate to Backpack Buddies by clicking the button below. As the saying goes, anything helps! You can make a one-time donation or contact Jodie at 740.534.3550 to set up a monthly contribution. Just $12.99 sponsors weekend meals for a child for an entire month.


Volunteer – There are many ways to help! Volunteers to pack meals or sort donations are always appreciated.

Material Donations – Have items to donate? We accept children and adult sized clothing, shoes, and coats. We also have yearly need for school supplies; paper, pens, notebooks, backpacks, etc.

Contact – Call Program Manager Jodie Hunt at 740.534.3550 to see when and where efforts are needed or if you can help!

We’re grateful for your support! We appreciate your efforts in helping us alleviate child hunger in Lawrence County.
