Giving Tuesday Recap: Thank You for Feeding Kids in SWFL This Year

A big, heartfelt THANK YOU to all who supported Blessings in a Backpack Southwest Florida Chapter on Giving Tuesday. Thank you for donating, sharing our mission, and caring for our kids. You are appreciated more than you know!

We would like to start serving 7,000 children by January 2023. Therefore, as 2022 quickly comes to an end, this is your chance to do your part to help those who need it the most. Our goal is to raise $50,000 for food-insecure children in Southwest Florida. If you missed making a donation on Giving Tuesday and would like to still give, 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.
