Backpack Blessings Kicks Off 5th Year of Services to Community

West Virginia

Elk River Backpack Blessings is gearing up for their fifth year of providing the tools and accessories the kiddos need to start the school year on the right foot.

Backpack Blessings serves the Elk River community, and are kicking off this school year trying to put backpacks and school supplies in the hands of as many students as possible who need these items.

The last few days have been spent giving away backpacks – a total of one hundred and seventy backpacks have been collected to disperse to the region.

One board member is happy to help, especially coming from a motherhood perspective.

“I would say we’ve been blessed. We have always been able to provide maybe not what our daughter wanted. But definitely what she needed and I think that’s all parents are trying to do,” said Angela Brown, Board Member of Elk River Backpack Blessings.

If you’d like to donate school supplies, head over to our website at to find out what supplies they are needing.
