Where will my donation go?

Because we are run by all volunteers, every penny goes directly into helping local children. Each donation is used to create Buddy Bags, which feed NWI kids throughout the weekends and breaks from school. All of our funding goes directly into helping the food-insecure and homeless families of Northwest Indiana.

Currently, we are serving schools in Southwestern Porter County and Winfield, Indiana. Your donations will directly impact kids in these schools. Here are the schools that we currently serve:

  • Crown Point: Taft Middle School, Jerry Ross Elementary, & Winfield Elementary
  • MSD of Boone Twp.: Hebron Elementary & Middle School
  • Porter Township: Porter Lakes Elementary, Boone Grove Elementary, Boone Grove Middle School, Boone Grove High School
  • Winfield: Kidzone Learning Center
