Chicks with Hits recently put together backpacks for the Keith Edmonds Foundation “Backpacks of Love” program. The backpacks are given to children who are removed from their homes due to abuse or neglect and provide essentials for the child’s immediate needs and items to provide comfort such as a stuffed animal, blanket, night light, a book or journal.
Eric Church and his wife also donated $10,000 toward purchasing the backpacks and contents through the Chief Cares Fund of The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee.
“The Chicks with Hits group went above and beyond in building backpacks that will go to children that are in immediate need,” said Edmonds, himself a survivor of child abuse. “There is a report of child abuse made every 10 seconds in the United States. Together we are doing our part in showing love to these children that are going through such adverse circumstances.”
