Many children across America find themselves without adequate food and school supplies each year. That’s where backpack programs come in! These programs give needy students backpacks filled with food for the weekend, school supplies, or both. Countless students have had their lives, both in and out of school, dramatically improved by backpack programs.

How You Can Help Needy Children

Backpack programs are a fantastic idea for those looking to get involved with improving the lives youth locally and elsewhere. By yourself or in a group, a concerned citizen can provide a child with a backpack filled with necessities. They could be school supplies to get through the year, food to eat at home or over the week, or any other number of helpful goods. These backpacks go a long way towards improving the lives and circumstances of needy children, from improving their health to making sure they get the most out of their education.

Of course, backpack fundraising can present quite an expense. It’s desirable to help as many children as possible, though the cost of food, school supplies, and backpacks themselves can quickly add up. Thankfully, there’s a solution when one partners with Rada Cutlery!

A Rada Cutlery fundraiser is just what you need to get the money to fill backpacks for children in need. Here’s why!

1. Three Ways to Fundraise

A Rada fundraiser features three distinct methods by which to meet and even exceed your goals. There are traditional catalog sales that see you offer catalogs to friends, coworkers, and family. Event sales is a proactive approach that sees you physically offer Rada Cutlery products at a function such as a church service or sporting event. Then there’s online sales, which allows your supporters to easily order Rada products from anywhere in the world, with the profits going directly to your group!
