Hurricane Ian Response

Hurricane Ian Response

Hurricane Ian brought devastation to many parts of Florida. Unfortunately, our Orlando Chapter was not immune from this destruction.

While Blessings in a Backpack is not a disaster relief organization, our nation’s emergency assistance programs have put us in a place to continue doing what we do best: feeding kids on the weekends. Here’s how our chapter is responding and how you can help.

Orlando volunteers and food

Orlando Chapter

  • Orlando has experienced severe flooding, displacing many families
  • Additionally, the chapter is seeing an influx of families in Central Florida who the hurricane displaced; Seminole County alone received more than 100 applications for emergency financial support overnight
  • The chapter is already directing food to some of the hardest hit areas
  • The chapter has the food solution and ability to distribute, but we need financial support to do so

If you’re able to give, any amount will help us continue feeding kids on the weekends during this emergency. As little as $4 can help provide food to a hungry child over a weekend.
