Skaff's BackPack Match

About This Campaign

Donate to the Food Bank's BackPack Program and have your donation matched by Skaff Furniture Carpet One!

Skaff Furniture Carpet One is excited to support the work of the Food Bank of Eastern Michigan's BackPack program. Skaff will match up to $10,000 in donations from the community to make sure elementary children won't suffer from hunger this school year. This program supports children who receive free or reduced-priced lunches at school by providing a backpack full of nutritious and easy-to-prepare foods for children to take home on the weekends. For many of these children, this backpack is their only source of food when school is not in session. Currently, this program supports 12,000 children throughout 22 counties. Every $100 donation provides one child with a BackPack for the entire school year. For more information on the BackPack Program, please visit the Food Bank's website

During the pandemic, the Food Bank continues to partner with schools to ensure kids will continue to receive support, no matter what education looks like for school districts and families during the 2020/21 school year. This program will ensure students receive meals safely by using our existing partnerships with schools to find the best method to serve their students. Whether kids are in schools or at home, we know the phenomenal teachers and school staff won’t let their students go hungry.
