Street Soldiers – the Backpack Challenge!
Written by Liam Sweeny on December 1, 2021
It’s the time a year where we give to people in need, and it’s something at least to counterbalance the store stampedes, snow-laden traffic and rude family members. And in the spirit of giving, we have a fun way to hook someone up in need.
If you’re on the streets, your life is what you can fit in a backpack. So the Backpack Challenge is a chance for you to outfit someone in your own way, with your own personal touch.
So get a backpack, a sturdy one. Fill it with essentials, whatever you want (but we have a guide below.)
When you have it together, mail it to Street Soldiers at:
12 Hoffman Street
Selkirk, NY 12158
You can also contact Street Soldiers on Facebook to arrange a pickup.
The backpacks will be given to people in dire need for the coming year. You might just save someone’s life.
