Baby Backpack Drive: Family Volunteer Day

Some two dozen Meher Schools students and parents spent Saturday morning at the White Pony Express distribution center in Pleasant Hill filling backpacks with goods donated by school families in our Baby Backpack Drive.

The volunteers made cards with love notes for the new mothers, which they put in goodie bags filled with chocolate and protein bars. These were included with the other donated items – diapers, onesies, socks, shampoo, blanket, a stuffed animal, and more – they placed in the backpacks.

Kindergarten mom Karina Madrigal, who organized the drive, said, “It was beautiful to see the ripple effect of people engaging in acts of kindness.”

A professional photographer captured the flavor of the event on video, and Erin Brockman, the mother of a first grader and a graduating fifth grader, shared her video on Instagram.
