This year, instead of giving another tie, another sweater, a box of candy, or whatever, give a gift that truly conveys the spirit of the holidays. Give a homeless person a Giving Back Backpack, filled with thermal underwear, a hat, gloves, and a sweatshirt, and give that backpack in honor of your friend, relative or co-worker.
When you send $25 to Giving Back / Linda's Legacy, a local school child will stuff a backpack with these essential winter clothes and put a card with the name of the person you wish to honor inside. We will then prepare a beautiful Holiday Card designed by a local homeless person documenting this gift, with a special insert describing your gift, and send it to you or your recipient, to be presented as your holiday gift to them." You can view the insert by clicking here.
Use our convenient Order Form. Give the gift that really counts and bring just a bit more happiness to the lives of those who really need it.
Our local schools, churches and community organizations have provided tremendous support to GBLL in the "Sponsor A Backpack" program. Click here to view a list of our supporters.
GBLL is very proud of the fact that local businesses are becoming more involved in supporting our efforts. During our collection days local restaurants have provided food to feed our volunteers, local business have provided us dumpsters, and port-a-pots, and local businesses have provided us boxes and other supplies for sorting and packing the donations. Last year several companies decided that instead of giving their key employees or key clients food baskets or flowers, they would sponsor a backpack for a homeless person in each of their names through our Sponsor a Backpack program. What a great idea!
