Brenden's Backpack

Food Drive for Brenden's Friday Backpack

This year for the month of February, we are focusing our food drive on not only donations, but also on a service opportunity. The students will be assembling "Snack Packs," which consist of 1 fruit/pudding/applesauce cup and 3-4 individually wrapped snacks. This food drive will last from February 1st through February 28th. 

We accept donations of non-perishable food in jars, cans, and sealed packages. We recommend applesauce cups, fruit cups, pudding cups, chips, cereal bars, pop tarts, peanut butter snack cups, cookies, cheese crackers, peanut butter crackers, microwave popcorn, Goldfish, etc. You can drop off donations at any R-7 building. 

All donations will be given to Brenden's Friday Backpack, benefiting students across Jefferson County.

Monetary donations are accepted. Please make checks payable to Jefferson R-7. Every dollar donated will equal 1 food item. 


  • 12,000 items donated = district-wide pizza party
  • The building who brings in the most donations will receive a doughnut breakfast.
