Got Your Back Pack

Got Your Back Pack logo

​​​​​Did you know?

Homelessness touches nearly every Rockwood school. In fact, current numbers show 180 Rockwood students are homeless with 32 percent of students residing in the county and 68 percent residing in the city.

How does Got Your Back Pack work?

Each weekend, our homeless students receive a backpack filled with nutritious food items that are easy to open, simple to prepare and can accommodate a variety of living circumstances.

How can I help?

​​​Online Donations

​When you give a donation using our secured online system, you'll provide funds to add food directly to children's backpacks, like fresh fruit and vegetables. Learn more about how​ you can don​ate online!

​​Food for Backpacks

You may donate sealed food items to ​any Rockwood school.  What kind of food do students need? Items include: bread, oatmeal, peanut butter, jelly, tuna, macaroni and cheese, pasta and spaghetti sauce, fresh fruit and applesauce. Gift cards to grocery stores to purchase these items are also appreciated.
