Welcome to Help 4 Kids / Backpack Buddies
Help4Kids / Backpack Buddies is a 100% volunteer organization that relies solely on donations. Children should not go to school hungry or without proper clothing, shoes or school supplies. We believe going to school prepared will help them learn and be better able to finish school and go beyond the cycle of poverty into which they were born.
In addition, children should not be hungry during the summer when school is out and they have no access to breakfast and lunch. We believe children should have the opportunity to grow, learn and be a child for as long as they can while receiving the basic needs as all other children. Every dollar collected goes for the kids. Over 25 years of feeding hungry children in Horry County.
Please plan to attend!

These are two of the Knights of Columbus that volunteer at Help4Kids. The Knights distribute food packs to Horry County schools for our Backpack Buddies’ Program, volunteer at our Walmart Food Drives in Garden City throughout the year, pick-up donations at the Pelicans’ on Backpack Buddies Monday home games and are there when we pick-up the phone to ask for help.
We want to thank the Knights for their continuing support and let them know that we can feed Barb’s kids, only because of them.
A BIG Thank You to the children and parents of St. Michael’s Catholic School. They donated these beautiful Easter Baskets!
We also want to thank all of you for the candy, stuffed animals, toys and baskets we received. We are so grateful to be able to share these with Barb’s Kids!
Help4Kids was very excited to be part of the opening of the new Walmart Neighborhood Market in Murrells Inlet. We are grateful for their donation to Backpack Buddies. Here’s a picture of the staff of the new Walmart with Devin Paharm, the Manager. Next week, they will begin to collect food for our Backpack Buddies Program. Thank You Walmart!
This month, Jersey Mike’s will again join forces with their customers for the 6th Annual Month of Giving to raise money for more than 180 charities coast to coast in 31 days. The month of fundraising will culminate on Wednesday, March 30th with Jersey Mike’s nationwide “Day of Giving.” On that “Day of Giving”, Help4Kids will receive 100% of the day’s sales! Last year, they raised more than $3 million for 150 charities nationwide.
Once again, Jersey Mike’s has selected Help4Kids as their charity. ALL the Jersey Mike’s stores along the Grand Strand, (eight stores) will give their donations to Help4Kids!!! Please support Jersey Mike’s as they support Help4Kids! We are very grateful for their generosity.
We will be holding our monthly food drive at four Walmart locations this month: Surfside Beach, Ocean Lakes, North Myrtle Beach (Gator Hole) and Garden City. We need six volunteers for each shift for each store (except Garden City where the Knights will be volunteering).
