K-tech Kleening Systems, Blessings in a Backpack and the Wisconsin Woodchucks have teamed up once again this season to bring you Homeruns for Hunger. For every homerun the Woodchucks hit, K-tech Kleening Systems donated $50.00 to Blessings in a Backpack. Thanks to the power hitters on the roster, we were able to donate $3,000 to help feed our local students.
Craig Kersemeier says it best, “K-tech has a long history of giving back to the community. Some programs are made public and some operate on a more silent nature. The Kersemeier family founded a non-profit organization, K-tech Charities in 2006 when we learned that some basic needs of families in our hometown were not being met. That year we started with a successful campaign to put warm blankets in the hands of those without, and the giving back never stopped.”
About Blessings in a Backpack
Blessings in a Backpack provides food over the weekend to children that qualify for the Federal Free and Reduced Lunch program. Students receive a backpack each Friday with easy to prepare meals and snacks. Students return the backpacks on Monday mornings nourished and ready to learn. Money raised in our community stays in our community. As a non-profit organization with 501(c)(3) status, we support our program costs through fundraising events, grants and both individual and business donations.
