Backpack Blessings from the Community

Backpack Blessings from the Community
Backpack Blessings from the Community originally started as a community partnership between Richmond Community Schools and the Methodist Church in Richmond.  Since its inception, many other organizations have assisted in this partnership through monetary and food donations as well as offering volunteers

Each week, volunteers stuff the backpacks full of food to feed families on the weekend.  The backpacks are filled according to the number of people and ages in the household and include enough food for breakfast, lunch and dinner on the weekends.

School social worker, Nancy Laratonda, gathers the names of families in need and works with the volunteers to provide the families with a backpack of food for the weekend.  Backpacks are delivered to the main office of school the child attends for them to pick up or they are delivered by volunteers to the students’ home.   The list of families in need is kept strictly confidentially by Ms. Laratonda.

In the summer when school was is not in session, the families may pick up their back packs full of food from the Board of Education Office.  If they were unable to pick them up, volunteers from the church delivered them to the homes.

While non-perishable food for the Backpack Blessings from the Community program are kept at Richmond High School where volunteers fill backpacks, donation bins are available in the lobbies or main office at each school for the community to make donations.

A sincere thank you to the following groups who have donated to Backpack Blessings from the Community program and to all of the individual and anonymous donors who have made this program possible:

Clubs and Service Groups: Richmond Rotary, Richmond Lions, Country Cruisers-Southern Thumb, Women's Life Group & River Strings, and Richmond Community Choir.

Churches: Trinity Lutheran, St. Augustine, United Church of Christ-Richmond, United Church of Christ-Casco, and First United Methodist.

School Groups: Richmond High School Interact (Key) Club

Businesses: ​Family Video, Hamilton Bike Shop, Nino Salvaggio International, Kroger, New haven Food Pantry, and St. John Plumbing.
