Backpacks of Love is honored to have been selected as the charity to receive the donations from Burger Bach of $1.00 for every February Special Burger "The Cuban" sold in four locations of Burger Bach. Visit Midlothian, Short Pump, Charlottesville and Durham, NC and help feed hungry kids!
In 2018 Backpacks of Love formed new private partnerships to help fund food for feeding hungry kids on the weekends. Whitten Brothers hosted an event "Drive a Car-Feed a Child" in November and December 2018. The result of the drive allowed Whitten Brothers to donate $5000 to Backpacks of Love. Thank you to all the people who showed up and drove a car at their locations in Midlothian and Ashland.
