LOUISVILLE, Ky. (News Release) -- Blessings in a Backpack kicked off the school year at Slugger Field Sunday by teaming up with the Louisville Bats for an afternoon game.

Blessings in a Backpack, 2012 recipient of People magazine's Charity of the Year award, directly impacts the lives of impoverished elementary school children by giving backpacks filled with easy-to-prepare, ready-to-eat food on the weekends. The charity currently feeds 4,000 Jefferson County schoolchildren, but 35,000 local kids are still in need of the program's support.
