Bucks for Backpacks Raffle

Bucks for Backpacks 2020 Winners

Stay tuned for 2021 raffle details!

Raffle proceeds supported UWNEMN's Buddy Backpacks program which provides food-insecure children from across our service territory with nutritious, nonperishable meal kits on weekends. 

This program continues to operate throughout the COVID-19 crisis; regardless of school status this fall, UWNEMN and local schools will work together to ensure that children who rely on this program receive the food they ned.

Funding for Buddy Backpacks is more important than ever before, as we have seen an increase in enrollment and have experienced funding loss due to the cancellation of in-person events.
