Support Eureka's Backpacks for Kids Program

Backpacks for Kids is a hugely successful program providing nourishment for Humboldt County’s neediest children. Participating Children receive a backpack fullof nutritional food to take home with them on the weekends.  Our schools work hard to provide good, nourishing meals for these children during the school week, but this is the only program that provides for them on weekends.  No child learns well on an empty stomach.  It not only affects how they learn, it affects how they develop and how they act with others.

Pay it forward, help a child today and DONATE.
You can help sponsor the program and have your name printed in a full page ad in the Times-Standard as a supporter.
Sponsor levels $100, $295 (will sponsor a child for a full year in the program), $600.
All donations are tax deductible
