Donations are the foundation and backbone of Bags of Hope! So many of your Lake Norman neighbors have given monetary gifts and donations of food and supplies. Will you help too? Scroll down for ways to give.

Monetary Donations

Partnerships with food banks, grocery stores, and food distributors stretch our donated dollars for maximum impact.

Child sponsorship is $60 per month or $500 for the school year.

Custom donation amounts and one-time gifts are also possible. Everything helps!

Give Food

Of course, food is what we are all about! We accept food donations in any quantity. Contact us for delivery or pickup info.

Food items should be in single-serve packaging. Large boxes won't fit in backpacks! No glass containers, please.

Food should be healthy and nutritious. Would you be happy to serve this to your child?

Here are some examples of food items most useful to us:


Instant oatmeal, instant grits, breakfast bars, healthy cereals

Lunch/Dinner Meals

Child friendly soups, canned pasta (like Chef Boyardee), Hormel Compleats, Prego Ready Meals, mac and cheese, beans and rice, tuna and crackers, Ramen noodle packets, spaghetti sauce and noodles (no glass jars)

Fruits and Veggies

Fruit cups, apple sauce, canned fruit, canned vegetables, single serving veggie cups


Crackers, small peanut butter jars, fruit snacks, peanut butter crackers, granola bars, trail mix, sunflower seeds


Milk or juice in single-serving boxes

Needed Supplies

It takes more than just food to run Bags of Hope. Additional needed items include:

- Backpacks: Kids are so proud of their shiny new backpacks. We're always looking for bags for newly added children.

- Large zip-close plastic bags, 2.5 gallon size: We try to re-use these, but they wear out quickly.

- Plastic grocery bags: We use these to transport food bags; it's a great chance to recycle!
