The bags of food are modest, but identical, and are labeled with the name of the child and the school. Backpacks and Beyond delivers to schools in Winfield, Brilliant, and Guin, Alabama. Lisa Porter shops once a month, and then bags and labels the food for each child. The Winfield Community Center lets the group store their stockpiled food in a small pantry on their premises.
Many of us take the simple things for granted, and it's hard for me to think about hungry children. If you'd like to send a check to help, Backpacks and Beyond has a facebook page, or you can reply to this post, and I will send you their contact information. Just a small group of people, in a small southern town, looking to do some good for our children. Thanks for reading.
