Bismarck Blessings was formed by the Social Worker and one of the teachers at Bismarck-Henning Elementary School. They had a vision to begin sending home backpacks with food every weekend to children who may need the supplemental food for the weekend. We started with about 10 backpacks and are up to almost 20 now. We hope to have lice products on hand to send home to families that need to be treated. Treating lice can be a very expensive process and we hope to help those families so we can help the children get back to school. We also want to start a program to provide haircuts for children in need. We hope to be able to provide backpacks to all the kids that need them by next school year.
