Weekend Backpacks for

Homeless Children

There are over 3,000 homeless children in Baltimore City schools.

MANY OF THEM GO HUNGRY. WE CAN FIX THAT WITH YOUR HELP!

 

  • Adopt a child! It costs $10/week to feed a child and their family. That means $40/month or $400/year! You can make your donation to TOS Backpacks or the Rabbi’s Hunger Fund.
  • Come and pack backpacks! You and your children will leave feeling like you have made a difference in the lives of others! 11:00 AM Unload and Setup, 12:00 Noon Packing

Sundays in 2018: Sept. 2, Oct. 7, Nov. 4, and Dec. 9

Sundays in 2019: Jan. 6, Feb. 3, Mar. 3, Mar. 31, Apr. 28, May 19

  • We need drivers to deliver bags to Baltimore city schools on Thursday mornings. You can drive weekly or once a month. The schools then distribute to the children they identify as “homeless.”

  • Plan a Mitzvah Project to raise money—a bake sale, bike-a-thon or whatever interests you! Be creative and be a part of this worthwhile initiative.
