“Hunger doesn’t take a weekend off”
Anita W. - AES Counselor: Ashville Elementary
“When the children receive their food on Fridays, it is like a little mini-Christmas. Each child is so happy to see what is in their bag of goodies!”
“I wanted to take this time to thank all those involved who make the Backpack Buddies Program possible. I am aware of how much time, money, manpower, love and dedication it takes to make a program like this work.”
Kim J. - 4th Grade Teacher: Ashville Elementary School
“What you provide is MORE than food. It is CONSISTANCY and HOPE”.
“I get so excited waiting for the kids to be called because I love to see their faces light up. I truly wish you could see through my eyes the looks on their faces and the excitement they have as they head to the counselor’s office.”
