Homeless Backpacks is a non-profit 501c3 Corporation committed to ending homelessness, by giving teens the help they need to focus on school, graduate, and become contributing citizens. They provide food for the weekend to homeless teens in Thurston, Mason, and Grays Harbor Counties. Some teens are in government-supported meal programs during the school day, but are on their own on the weekend. Each week, volunteers deliver food bags to local middle and high schools in support of these teens.
In 2016, Washington Water contributed $4,500 to the Auction which is taking place October 22, 2016, in Lacey, Washington.
