McLennan County Pack of Hope

Our Mission

McLennan County Pack of Hope exists to erase child hunger in McLennan County by supplying participating school districts and their eligible students with backpacks filled with nutritious food to prevent hunger from Friday through Sunday while they are not in school.

History

  • Pack of Hope was founded on the idea of helping those in need. Since our organization was established, we have endeavored to provide help where the need is greatest.
  • Our team is made up entirely of volunteers. We advocate for those who need our help. Even a little help goes a long way.
  • That is why we are especially happy to find new volunteers who share our commitment to doing good in the world. Do you want to support us by helping with our work? Then do not hesitate to contact us. A helping hand is always greatly appreciated!
  • Ensuring our children are fed over weekends and holidays allows kids to focus throughout the week on their studies and have the resources necessary to excel in school.
