CTS Impact is proud to sponsor Blessings in a Backpack DIY 5k. From Saturday, 11/7 to Sunday, 11/15, CTS Impact employees will be participating in a 5k to raise money and awareness for Blessings in a Backpack.
Blessings in a Backpack is a non-profit organization that feeds school children in the United States who currently are fed during the week on the federally funded Free and Reduced Meal Program and are at risk of going hungry on the weekends. Its mission is to mobilize communities, individuals, and resources to provide food on the weekends for elementary school children across America who might otherwise go hungry. The program works with elementary school-aged children whose families cannot afford enough food. Better test scores, improved reading skills, positive behavior, improved health and increased attendance have all been attributed to the success of this program.
