Backsnack Packing at The Children's Place
BMA has a long-standing partnership with The Children's Place, Kansas City’s leading trauma-informed early childhood education program and counseling center. Every third Friday of the month, BMA donates fresh fruit and invites volunteers to fill backpacks full of food from TCP's donation pantry to give to children in their day treatment program.
The whole process only takes 30-45 minutes and kids are welcome (and older kids have a good time helping, too!). There’s plenty of space for your children to play in the same room where we pack the backpacks - sort of like a quick and fun play date!
