Blessings in a Backpack, Frederick Schools partnered with the national organization in Jan. 2014 to serve the children of Frederick County, MD. 100% of the money raised locally goes to feed our local children and our community has been incredibly supportive. The national organization absorbs all administrative costs and has been exceptionally helpful and supportive. Great people doing a great job. What a terrific organization!

I run the program for our town. 100% of what is raised in our community goes directly to the kids of our community. All my helpers are volunteer including myself. Blessings in a Backpack provides the backpacks, accounting, and support to our program for free. They raise their own money to cover their experiences. The corporate office is full of wonderful and hardworking people. I am thankful to work with them and I know the kids in my town are thankful that they exist. They are a true Blessing to many kids.

This organization is not open with their information. I would be warry of donating to them. They have lots of fun, heartwarming stories, but no 990 posted and when I tried to get more information about where they worked in my area, or the specific numbers of kids served, they blew smoke in my face and said something about privacy and protecting kids. I am all for helping kids, but when it comes to my donation, I will give it to an organization that's transparent and one I can trust.

not sufficiently satisfying my inquiry for information that would only aid the organization by making it available
