With the uncertainty of how long schools may be closed due to the Coronavirus, and knowing how many children rely on school-funded lunches to stay fed; it has been on our hearts to help the children of our local community during this pandemic.
Help 4 Kids / Backpack Buddies is a 100% volunteer organization that relies solely on donations. They collect donations of food and snacks, that are then put into food sacks and into the backpacks of children in Horry County that may not have access to food or snacks after school or on the weekends.
With schools possibly being out for the next month these children need food now more than ever!
Donations can be taken directly to:
2523 Forestbrook Road, MB 29588
M-F, 9am-4pm / 843-651-4310
Or you can have items shipped directly to the above address. We made a list of items they generally are looking for as a point of reference.
A monetary donation can be made here. Even a few dollars can help keep a child fed.
