We invite you to come and spend the day with us and our partners.
Blessings In A Backpack
Erickson’s has teamed up with Blessings in a Backpack.
We have committed to helping the School District’s in Lee County.
During the month of December – Erickson’s will accept ANY size donation, from $1.00 up to however much your generosity allows.
$80 feeds a child in the program for an entire school year.
Blessings in a Backpack is a results-oriented program. This unique program is designed to feed elementary school children whose families qualify for the federal free and reduced meal program, and may not have any or enough food on the weekends. 100% of the Proceeds goes back into the program of Feeding Children in Need.
Better test scores, improved reading skills, positive behavior, improved health and increased attendance have all been attributed to the success of this program.
Following a donation, a school is chosen and a local grocer partners with the program to provide food for meals in the backpacks.
Each Friday, students receive their backpacks with staples that require little to no preparation. They are provided with supplies to sustain hunger over the weekend, and return with their backpacks on Monday ready to learn.
