Blessings In A Backpack

Blessings in a Backpack is a community-based program

Blessings in a Backpack provides snacks and meals to kids who may need a little extra help between lunch on Friday and breakfast on Monday.


We feed between 1,000 and 1,300 kids per week in 20 schools throughout Campbell County depending on the faithfulness of dozens of weekly volunteers and many donors for this vital ministry. Blessings in a Backpack is a national organization with a chapter in Gillette, Wyoming.


New Life Gillette Church partners with Blessings in a Backpack by providing a part-time coordinator to manage the program. Gillette groups and businesses are the backbone of Blessings in a Backpack by donating funds and providing volunteer support throughout the year.  


If your group is interested in volunteering for Blessings in a Backpack or coordinating a fundraiser, please contact Darci Wilson at 307-228-0311, or Check back in August to view the available volunteer opportunities to prep the warehouse, pack bags, hold a fundraiser and help in other ways.
