Blessings in a Backpack
Johns Creek Books & Gifts is partnering with Blessings in a Backpack/FAM Fund to help collect food for our neighbors who are at risk for hunger as well as help provide lunches and groceries to the students that normally are on the free lunch program in our area schools. Johns Creek Books & Gifts is now a food donation site for this mission. Email to learn about volunteer opportunities or for information on donating to their fund.
