Please note: Upstate Backpack Blessings operates under the 501(c)(3) umbrella of First Baptist Simpsonville/Upstate Church and all monetary donations are tax deductible to the extent permitted by law. When you give through the link below, 100% of your gift will go to Upstate Backpack Blessings and will be used to purchase the food to fill the bags. You may choose to give one time or set up a recurring gift. The school year lasts 9 months. If you choose to give by recurring gift, you would need to personally stop the gift during the summer months if that is your choice. Otherwise, the gift will run through the calendar year and continue into the next school year. These summer blessings will provide for any administrative needs (printing, shelving, postage, incidental costs, annual website operation) that will prepare us for the upcoming school year.
