In 2018 Backpacks of Love formed new private partnerships to help fund food for feeding hungry kids on the weekends. Whitten Brothers hosted an event “Drive a Car-Feed a Child” in November and December 2018. The result of the drive allowed Whitten Brothers to donate $5000 to Backpacks of Love. Thank you to all the people who showed up and drove a car at their locations in Midlothian and Ashland.
The mission of Backpacks of Love is to eliminate hunger in school-age children in Central Virginia by providing food for their weekends.
