VOLUNTEERING AT OUR NEW WAREHOUSE
We were blessed to have several groups volunteer with us since moving into our new warehouse, including The Women in Business from Auburn Chamber of Commerce. Contact us to schedule a service project for your group.
OUR NEW WAREHOUSE
We could use a few more hands to help us organize supplies in our warehouse. Contact us to schedule an appointment for yourself or group.
We are now booking speaking engagements at churches, schools, and other organizations/events. Oslyn had a great time speaking at Sigma Phi Lamda's Spring Retreat.
BPI SCHOOL BUS
Last month, Oslyn resumed driving the school bus, and is looking forward to God opening up a door to bless the ministry with our very own BPI bus. Oslyn's dream is to load up a school bus with backpacks and drive it to different schools all across the USA. Will you pray with us for God's blessings? Pictured is Oslyn and one of her trainers, Mr. Mack, who has been driving for over 50 years.
WELCOME PASTOR ED WILSON!
We are pleased to announce the newest edition to the BPI Board. Please help us welcome Vice Chairman, Pastor Ed Wilson. Brother Wilson is a longtime friend and supporter of BPI, and possesses over 50 years of ministry experience. We are blessed to have him on our team.
BECOME A BACKPACK BACKER
As we continue to grow and expand, we need more financial partners, affectionately known as Backpack Backers. Will you prayerfully consider partnering with us? To learn more, visit backpackinernational.org/our-backers.
For Black History Month this year, WE celebrated by recognizing several Donors of Color for their contributions to BACKPACK INTERNATIONAL. Check out our GENEROUS & INFLUENTIAL honorees below.
"The mission of BPI goes beyond the material support for children around the world. It also goes into the depth of using what you have been given to be a difference-maker for one. I challenge you and ask 'Will you be a difference-maker for one? Will you see beyond you and make room and space for another to be blessed too?"

"It was easy for us to say YES when approached to become contributors and volunteers for Backpack International. BPI's service to the local and international community embodies Matthew 25:40 (NIV) – "…whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me."
