Virtual Packing Events
Host a Virtual Packing Event fundraiser and work remotely with your employees to feed kids on the weekends!
Blessings in a Backpack will create an online donation portal exclusively for your company—share your link, ask employees to give, and see progress towards your goal. Here’s how it works:
- Determine the number of bags that your company aims to “pack.” Virtual packing event levels start at 500 bags with a fundraising goal of $2,000, a cost of $4 per bag of food.
- Blessings in a Backpack will create an online donation portal for your company. There’s even the option to create teams!
- Challenge your employees to “pack bags,” a.k.a. donate, to reach your fundraising goal.
- Consider having your company match employee donations to help meet your goal.
Donations made through virtual packing events cover the costs of providing prepacked bags of ready-to-eat food for school-aged children in the First Coast. The prepacked bags contain items that are healthy, kid-friendly, and meet the strict USDA standards. Click here to learn more about the food our programs serve.
