We here at Backpack Buddies are excited to announce our upcoming event, A Night to End Hunger- Volusia Fundraiser, coming up on Saturday, August 6, 2022.
The purpose of this fundraising event is to raise funding for operations and food for our local Pantry. This event will be themed as Casino Night in DeLand! All monies raised will go directly to the Backpack Buddies Organization. We will offer passed Hors d’oeuvres, Cash Bar, Silent and Live Auctions and Live Entertainment! Come have some Fun while raising money for a local cause!
Since inception of Backpack Buddies in September of 2019, we have been rewardingly busy! In 2019, approximately 21 children a week were receiving Kids Pack Meals for the weekends through our program. Currently, we are serving 307 kids weekly in 4 West Volusia Schools and hoping to add another in the Fall of 2022 with your help!
We need some extra help to make sure everything goes off without a hitch and we can make a huge impact together as a community for this upcoming event.
