Backpack Buddies!

Backpack logo

Have you thought about supporting Backpack Buddies, but it got away from you? It is never too late!

The Backpack Buddies Program serves children in our school who may not have access to healthy meals at all times. The children in this program pick up a bag full of nutritious food on Fridays to have over the weekend. Unfortunately, there are more children at North Ridge who could benefit from Backpack Buddies than we have the funds to sponsor. There are several levels of sponsorship.


A donation of $40 provides 1 month of weekend nutrition, $175 feeds a student for 1 semester and $350 feeds them for the whole year!


You can sponsor a backpack yourself or team up with others to sponsor together! If you are interested in donating or have any questions please contact Jennifer Baucom at Thank you!
