Blessings In a Backpack is a non-profit organization that provides underprivileged, elementary school children with easy-to-prepare and ready-to-eat food for the weekends. Without this program, many children face going hungry on weekends when not provided with school meals. The consequences of hunger are much more than a growling stomach. Poor nutrition can result in a weaker immune system, increased hospitalization, lower IQ, shorter attention spans, and lower academic achievement.
To help spread awareness and raise money for our friends at Blessings, we have turned August into Blessings in a Backpack month. For every service call, maintenance call, or installation done in the month of August, Jansen’s will donate $1 to our local Blessings organization. At Jansen’s we want to help ensure that the children of our communities don’t go hungry. You can help us by scheduling your appointments in August or visit their site to see how you can get involved: www.effinghambackpack.org.
