• Blessings in a Backpack

    Club Sponsor: Mr. Ed Gray (ext. 412811)

    Overview:
    Blessings in a Backpack is a Lambert-based organization that provides weekend food to elementary/middle school students in the Federal Free & Reduced Meal Program in Forsyth County. Lambert High School is the only Blessings in a Backpack servicing Forsyth County Schools. Our team meets every Friday morning to pack individual bags for students in the program to take home for the weekend. $150 feeds one child in the program for an entire 38-week school year. 100% of the food and money collected will be used to fill backpacks for students in our county. This school year we are currently feeding over 455 elementary and middle school students at 16 Forsyth County Schools.  Lambert leads by example in the quest to end hunger each weekend for some of our own in our backyard.  It is through your efforts and generous donations of both time, product and money that we succeed together.
