Where Compassion Meets Action
The Angels of Action Backpack Blessings program serves children who are food insecure, meaning they do not have "access at all times to enough food for a active, healthy life." (Anderson, 1990) The program targets kids who access free and reduced lunches. Children identified as "in need" by school and site coordinators are sent home each weekend with a backpack filled with healthy foods.
Thank you Walmart!
In this season of giving, we are grateful and humbled that Angels of Action is one of the 140 non-profits across the counrty that has been awarded money from the $1.5 Million in grants that are being given. AOA will be receiving $10,000 which we are eager to send home in the backpacks of our area’s children in need.
