CHISHOLM, MN -

You can be a buddy to Northland kids, by packing some backpacks!

The United Way of Northeastern Minnesota's Buddy Backpack drive is back and they need your help Thursday.

The packing begins in Chisholm and runs from 2:00 - 3:30 p.m.

With the help of community volunteers, The United Way of Northeastern Minnesota will pack more than 28,000 Buddy Backpack food kits this year. That means more than 126,000 meals going to kids in need. 
 
The packing will take place in the warehouse connected to the back of the Chisholm City Hall building at 316 West Lake Street.

There will be two more packing sessions on October 26th and November 8th.
