Five years, ~7,378 bags of food for our Maury students later, Blessings in a Backpack is going strong and helping our Maury students who need the support over the weekends. Because of you, our students have better access to food on the weekends and gift cards, compliments of the PTA on long holidays.

Also, if you have plastic grocery bags, we would love to reuse them for the BIB bags (please drop off to Ms. Lusk, Maury’s social worker – her office is right down from Mr. Powell’s office). In the coming months, we will be sending out a sign-up sheet for parents to help pick up packed food from the ALIVE! Warehouse in Old Town and deliver to Maury (to Ms. Lusk and then on to our students). More to come on that!
