BGCG Members Receive Holiday Backpacks

On Tuesday at the Boys and Girls Club of Greenwich, members from Filling in the Blanks, a nonprofit organization based in nearby Norwalk that aims to fight childhood hunger, passed out over 100 backpacks filled with special items for the holidays to Club Kids who are a part of the Filling in the Blanks program. Shawnee Knight and Tina Kramer, both mothers, started the organization in 2013 as a way to marry their love of community, children, food and charity, not just during the holidays, but year round.
