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.

Little River Rotary Club – Party benefiting Help4Kids

Little River Rotary Club had their annual party on Sunday, August 23, at the Yacht Club in Little River. The Rotarians conducted a food drive throughout the area and collected a “trailer load” of food, toiletry items, back packs and school supplies for Help4Kids. In addition to the delicious buffet, there was music, a 50-50 drawing and an auction to benefit the homeless kids in N. Myrtle Beach. Thanks to Erna, Craig & all of the Rotarians.
