Our membership is passionate about the many non-profits serving our local community.  On a quarterly basis, TEMPO Waukesha's Community Impact Committee chooses and introduces a non-profit to members at monthly luncheons.   At each luncheon, members have the opportunity to hear about and/or support the highlighted organization.  Blessings in a Backpack.

Blessings in a Backpack mobilizes communities, individuals and resources to provide food on the weekends for elementary school children across America who might otherwise go hungry. In 2012, we founded the Waukesha County chapter of Blessings in a Backpack to bring this mission to life … in our own backyard. We are a self-funded, local chapter of the national organization Blessings in a Backpack.

The weekend gap beginning at 3pm on Friday afternoon and ending at 8am on Monday morning is a time that many children of struggling families go hungry.


We are grateful for any amount given. 

  • It only takes $100 to feed a child for the school year and your donations feeds kids locally! 

If you would rather give items, we are always in need of:

  • Individual sizes of pussing, applesauce, oatmeal, Nutrigrain bars, fruit snacks or canned fruit. Be sure to check expiration dates as these may not be distributed immediately. 
Donations will be collected at our August, September and October luncheons.
