Filling in the Blanks – Holiday Backpack Program

September 29, 2023 @ 8:00 am - October 27, 2023 @ 4:00 pm

Filling in the Blanks fights childhood hunger by providing children in need with meals on the weekends. FITB currently supports 5500+ students at 200+ locations across 11 Connecticut and New York towns. They deliver a new gift-filled backpack to the children in their program every year. Kids use this backpack year-round to transport their Weekend Meal Bags home.
How you can help:
1. Purchase the book, What Do You Do with an Idea? from Elm Street Books
2. Purchase a Sorry Board Game from The New Canaan Toy Store or The Toy Chest
3. Host a fundraiser with proceeds benefitting our most needed items. Donation Deadline: 10/27/2023. Click HERE for more information. If you have any questions, please get in touch with community@fillingintheblanks.org.
