Backpacks make a
difference in Haiti

Mission Backpack collections provided more than 7,000 backpacks filled with hygiene kits, new bibles and stuffed bears to hurting children in Haiti and Florida. In Florida, Mission Backpack has partnered with Florida Baptist Children’s Homes, Moody Radio Florida, Moody Radio South Florida and WAY radio to collect backpacks and school supplies. We are excited the share these photos of the backpacks being delivered in Haiti!

We Need Your Help!

Mission Backpack collections across the US have provided the hope of education to children around the world. You can host a Mission Backpack collection at your church, school or other business. Thousands of orphan and vulnerable children around the world do not go to school because they cannot afford basic school supplies.
