Individual Volunteers

While all of our key positions are currently staffed with volunteers, we will on occasion put out a call for volunteers to help us at events, or to seek people to staff volunteer positions that have been vacated by posting a notice on this page, and also on our Facebook page. Please check back for updates.

Volunteering to Pack the Bags (limited to groups of 10 or more)

If you are a non-profit group of 10 or more people that would like to get on the waiting list to pack the bags for one session during the school year, please fill out the form below and submit it.
Please note that we often have our calendar booked a year in advance, so don’t be surprised if you don’t hear back from us soon. We pack the bags on Wednesdays between 3:30 and 5:30 pm during the school year.

Hosting a Fundraiser

Businesses, churches, clubs and individuals have helped us by hosting a fundraiser for us.    If you are interested in hosting a fundraiser, please contact Deb Peake at 517-927-9008 or at blessingsinabackpackgl@gmail.com with your idea so that we can promote the fundraiser on our Facebook page.

Here are some ideas for fundraisers:

-Party at your home or at a restaurant
-Business fundraiser
-Employee fundraising drive
-Bake sale
-Loose change challenge
-Designated donation through your church or service club
-Silent auction
-Garage sale
-Golf outing
-Bowling event
-Sports or music event
