Brittany’s Backpack Ministry

Read full case study at end of article.

Brittany’s Backpack Ministry was founded in 2009. The purpose and passion behind the ministry are in honor of Brittany Nicole Smith who passed at the age 8 from Asthma. In memory of Brittany, who was incredibly generous and fond of school, they provide food, school supplies, and other resources to their neighborhood and under-resourced communities.

As part of our Pledge 1% partnership – ADAPTOVATE supported the organization recently with launching their new website and providing business advice from the team.
