The Sanford Backpack Program

$740 of $1,000 goal

Raised by 36 people in 40 months
Jennifer Paquin Davie   SANFORD, ME
So I have 1,028 Facebook friends...The community that I live in is rallying to raise funds for a very worthy cause...each day children (in the community that I live in) struggle with food insecurity......they do not know what or when they will eat when they are away from school (on the weekends)...I am challenging each of my FB friends to send me $1 (okay...more if you would like...maybe you can cover someone else's dollar...someone like my hubby who has a FB account but logs on twice a year and will never get this message :)) If my community raises $1000 we have an anonymous donor who will match those funds raised. Ella and Gracie (my elementary aged kids) want to see if this was a challenge that we could meet alone...with 1,028 FB friends they have the optimism of children and think it can be done for sure! Ella and Gracie will be keeping statistics...we will keep you updated once we receive our first dollar...Ready...Set...Go!

Jut want to shout out and update...56.8% of my Facebook friends have sponsored the Sanford Backpack Program...collectively we have raised $585!!! That is really insane and a testament to how awesome something can become when we all work together towards a collective cause. The Sanford Backpack Program benefits kids right here in your community...kids that you see in school with your kids, kids who play on the same sports fields as your kids, kids who are swinging on the swings at the park next to your kids...you guys are amazing! If you have not yet donated and wish to. please follow this link...you can also "share" to help get the word out to your friends and family. Thank you again!
