Welcome to Savannah Backpack Mission

Savannah Backpack Mission Inc. is a non-profit organization created by me, Lilli Apt, to help raise money for campers attending City of Savannah summer camps. My part in all of this is to fundraise and buy Nike drawstring bags and water bottles for each camper.

Last year, 2021, SBM raised $7,330 from 90 donors and was able to purchase as well as hand out 450 backpacks and water bottles to campers at local city camps.

This year, 2022, SBM raised $10,200 and handed out 650 backpacks and water bottles. The cost of these camps is $20/week and 98% of these campers qualify for free lunches. A second backpack and water bottle handout is scheduled for later in the summer targeting local high school sports camps.

Thank you so much for your help and support!
