Backpack Attack

At Calvary, we are committed to helping kids have access to food this summer. Would you help make this a reality?


Backpack Attack is a United Way of Douglas and Pope Counties program that provides a bag of weekend food to 250 families, K-12 in the Alexandria Public School District. Each bag costs $5. In order to fund this program for the entire summer, we need to raise $12,000 AND pack 2,400 bags of food. Donate or sign up to volunteer below:

 1. Volunteer for the packing event on Thursday, June 25 at Lincoln Elementary. Please note: Volunteers must be 16+ and spots are limited due to social distance requirements. Follow link for full COVID-19 guidelines.


2. Donate directly to Backpack Attack. Bremer Bank will match the first $3,000 in donations! Follow this link and select "Backpack Attack" from the drop-down menu.



Thank you for making a difference in the lives of local students!
