This year our BHH Backpacks will serve 1,400 students with backpacks filled with 6 meals and 2 snacks for the weekend.  We will deliver these backpacks to the 8 elementary schools throughout the 2013-2014 school year.  With the help of an amazing group of grantors an a team of volunteers from local religious and secular organizations committed to each school, Boca Helping Hands is able to reach more students each year.  These are the grantors that support the BHH Backpacks Program:  Bank of America-Local Grants- Critical Needs; Batchelor Foundation; Boca Raton Regional Hospital; Cathleen Cox McFarlane Charitable Foundation; Community Foundation of Martin & Palm County; Tzedakah (H.O.T.); VanPelt/Bass Foundation; Walmart
