The Art of Giving

ArtFusion 19464 is partnering once again with Operation Backpack to host a food drive during November. 

Operation Backpack is a 501c3 nonprofit organization, providing food to students in our community who would go without over the weekend. 

ArtFusion 19464 is located at 254 E. High St.
They work to help homeless and hungry students succeed by addressing the issue of childhood hunger.

Operation Backpack serves alongside individuals and organizations to collect food and materials. 

Volunteers pack these items into backpacks, which are sent out to qualifying students who discretely pick up the backpacks each Friday and return them on Monday. 

The process begins again for the next weekend.

Donations can be dropped off at 254 E. High St. during normal business hours (Tuesday-Friday 10am-5pm and Saturday 10am-3pm). A collection box will be at the front of the store until Nov. 25. 

Please check the list for approved items.

Thank you for your help in providing this vital assistance to those in our community.

Here is the list:
  • Tuna To-Go 
  • Mac & Cheese 
  • Spaghettios/Beef Ravioli 
  • Vegetable Beef Soup 
  • Chicken and dumplings 
  • Chicken and Noodle Soup 
  • Granola Bars 
  • Pop-Tarts 
  • Goldfish 
  • Water 
  • Gatorade

All items should be sized for a single individual and ready to eat with no cooking required.
