When many Liberty students go home, they have the luxury and comfort of knowing that there is food in the pantry for them to eat at home. They know that their needs will be met. Many even take it for granted and barely give it a thought. But some people at this school are not so fortunate. And that’s where Backpack Impact comes in.

Seniors Jack Kavanaugh and Evan Sacks decided to hold a canned food drive to benefit Backpack Impact, as their chapter project in their Advanced 2 Marketing Class. 

“They supply food on the weekends to kids in our school district that’re lower income,” explained their teacher Ms. Taylor.

Backpack Impact is a foundation based out of Morning Star Church that “directly takes what cans they’ve got and give it to people we know, people we share classrooms with,” Kavanaugh said. “My girlfriend’s mom – she helps lead it (Backpack Impact), so when we found out that we were going to do a charity project I knew for a fact that we were gonna go with hers.”
