Got Your Back Pack

Got Your Back Pack is a program that provides nutritious food to students in need. 
 

Did you know? 

Homelessness touches nearly every Rockwood school. In fact, current numbers show 180 Rockwood students are homeless with 32 percent of students residing in the county and 68 percent residing in the city.
 

How does Got Your Back Pack work? 

Each weekend, our homeless students receive a backpack filled with nutritious food items that are easy to open, simple to prepare and can accommodate a variety of living circumstances.
 

How can I help?

New this year - you can donate online!

Individual donations may also be dropped off at ​any Rockwood school or to Brittany Hogan​, Coordinator of Educational Equity and Diversity, at her office located in Crestview Middle School, 16025 Clayton Road in Ellisville, MO 63011.  In addition, you can donate at one of our community supporters listed below.
