• Blessings in a Backpack

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

    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 close to 400 students.
