Seeing a need for energetic, nonprofit work in this area, we formed our organization to provide sensible solutions. We've consistently grown since then, all thanks to the helping hands of this amazing community!
We focus on making the maximum positive effort for our community. Our members and volunteers provide the momentum that helps us affect change. Using data driven models, we provide solutions that make a long-lasting difference.
We Believe if we can change the life of 1 child,
how many lives will that 1 child change

Highlights of our program.
1. The child nominated by the school staff, Medical Staff, Clergy or Law Enforcement (Parents cannot request pack)
2. Child must bring pack back each week.
3. Child must not deface pack.
ANY one in our community can help build a backpack. ONLY members of ESA and your chapter can pickup and deliver packs.
We accept no federal/state money, that way we do not have to fall under their guidelines of who will receive the packs. Zeta Nu operates on local donation from our community only (money and food).
Our first program, we did 5 packs to 2 schools. We use backpacks for our weekend program. This last year we filled 9,648 packs We do not know the child name nor do we want to. The schools appoint their own administer who over sees the giving/ receiving the pack from the child. The principle appoints this person the chair of the program will introduce your chapter member to the principle/ administer of that school.
We can send you the letter I have adopted and how we send it. The cost per pack is between $10-$12 per week and we operate from the 1st Friday after Labor Day (September) until about 2 weeks before school closes in May. We use new/ gentle used pack packs for our program. Also food list of items we put in our packs. We do single child packs and leave it up to the schools to give out to the child.
Zeta Nu stands on the foundation that there is no "I" in team, and we are all in this together.
