Join us as we collect food items to Pack the Backpack at Sam's Club and Hugo's Family Marketplace in East Grand Forks. United Way’s Backpack Program fights to end childhood hunger by providing food in students’ backpacks to feed them for the weekend. A donation can help provide up to six meals for kids who need a bit more help and hope when they’re away from school. Together, we are ensuring no child goes hungry.
