Join Project Boon in Supporting Back-to-School and Combating Food Insecurity


Project Boon is thrilled to announce the upcoming back-to-school event on Saturday, July 29th, at the Bloomington Community Health Center, as well as the exciting kick-off of our very first 210 Corridor Backpack Drive and Distribution. As the summer season reaches its peak, Project Boon is eager to extend a helping hand to under-resourced families in our region during this critical time.

Project Boon is dedicated to hosting holiday-based events that provide valuable resources while also creating large-scale volunteer opportunities. But our ultimate goal is to address the pressing issue of food insecurity that affects countless individuals and families in our region.
During the summer months, when school is out, under-resourced families face added stress as their school-age children no longer receive free or reduced meals. This event holds immense significance, particularly as we focus our efforts on areas with a higher number of Title 1 schools.

Understanding the challenges these families face, Project Boon strives to make a positive impact by addressing both their educational and nutritional needs. A key aspect of our back-to-school event is the provision of two weeks’ worth of groceries to every family in attendance. This essential support helps combat the increased food insecurity that arises during the summer. By ensuring families have access to nutritious meals, Project Boon aims to alleviate some of the burdens they face and create a healthier environment for children to thrive in.

Now, more than ever, Project Boon needs your support. We urge all dedicated supporters to join us in making a difference. Here’s how you can help:

  • Volunteer: Be part of our incredible team and lend your time and skills during the event. Your assistance will directly impact the lives ofthose in need.
  • Spread the word: Share Project Boon’s mission and the details of our back-to-school event with friends, family, and colleagues. Every voice matters in raising awareness and garnering support.
  • Make a tax-deductible donation: Project Boon relies on the generosity ofindividuals and local businesses to sustain our efforts. Consider making a donation on our website, knowing that your contribution will make a tangible difference in the lives of those facing food insecurity.

Together, we can uplift under-resourced families and create a community where everyone has access to the resources they need to thrive. Let’s come together on July 29th and make this back-to-school event a memorable and impactful experience. Project Boon looks forward to making a positive change with you!
