We're excited to announce our next event will be held on Friday, October 7 at Fern Creek United Methodist Church (6727 Bardstown Road) at 6 PM! We'll be putting together snack bags for those experiencing homelessness in our community and would love to see you there. Our events are fun for volunteers of all ages and abilities, so bring your family and friends and help us serve those in need.



Please bring 1-gallon zipper bags and individually wrapped snack items to put in the bags. Need ideas about what to bring? Check out our Amazon Wishlist or watch our Facebook page for information. You can also make a PayPal donation to help us purchase supplies for the event.





Can't make the event but still want to help? You can send supplies via the Wishlist or contact us for local pickup of donations (Louisville Metro area).


Visit us on Facebook to RSVP for the event and get details. We look forward to seeing you on the 7th and thanks for your support of Snacks in Sacks!

We are happy and grateful to share the efforts of the Cane Run Elementary Student Council, under the leadership of Professional School Counselor Aisha Walker. These students collected supplies for Snacks in Sacks as part of their community service outreach. These outstanding young people are going places and will do great things. Thanks for your support of Snacks in Sacks!

Today we'd like to acknowledge several of our recent supporters. First, thank you to Ahrens Work Transition Program for another year of faithful service! Amanda Jones and her students worked diligently from March-May to transform donated snack items into ready-to-distribute goodie bags: 1,794 in total. A bonus thank you to all of our Amazon Wishlist and PayPal donors that ensured the success of this event - you know who you are!




Second, we'd like to again thank the LG&E and KU Foundation for supporting our work. We are grateful to have been awarded a Community Impact Grant. Our Ahrens partnership is merely one of the ways we are able to partner with individuals, families, and organizations to collect and provide snack bags and other essentials to people who are experiencing homelessness and food insecurity.


Third, we'd like to recognize Knowfully Learning Group (KLG) for their support. Snacks in Sacks recently received a $1000 donation as part of the Knowfully Cares initiative. The need within the homeless community is significant, and we appreciate every single contribution to the cause: small and large.


Another contributor that we'd like to acknowledge is Sarah M. Lawrence, our Board President and Executive Director. Dr. Lawrence is Product Manager, Pharmacy Technician Education at KLG. If you've ever met Sarah, or corresponded with her to drop off bags or donations, you know that she goes above and beyond for Snacks in Sacks. Her passion for helping SIS dates back to the group's first year serving the local community. She organized numerous private events with her friends and family to benefit Snacks in Sacks long before joining the Board of Directors, and she continues to find creative ways to enable others to get involved. I'm happy to announce that Sarah was honored this year as a recipient of her company's Community Impact Award. As a result, Snacks in Sacks received an additional grant from KLG.


Congratulations, Sarah!!! And thank you to Knowfully Learning Group for your generosity!
