BFL x Hot Seat Warmers on Fox Business

We recently teamed up with another Verona, NJ business to continue serving our veterans. HotSeat Warmers recently donated their disposable seat warmers to one of our packing events. We immediately got in touch with them and we've been off to the races ever since! Hot Seat Warmers now features a special charity shop on their site where YOU can purchase seat warmers that will go directly into our backpacks! 

HotSeat Warmers was recently featured on Building Business Icons, a Fox Business segment with Kevin Harrington, former shark from the hit TV series Shark Tank. Steve Baureis, founder of HotSeat Warmers, made a special mention to their work with BFL and our veterans. We were honored to be part of this great segment! Check it out below!

BFL x 880 AM News

In May of 2015, Backpacks For Life attended the Liberty Lightning 9k, held at Liberty State Park in Jersey City. It wasn't the best day weather wise for a 9k but we ended up luckier than most!

By the end of the day, we had many visitors to our tent (some to stay dry) but others curious about what the big red tent was. In turn, we met a radio correspondent from the popular 880 AM news. He was reporting for Memorial Day Weekend and it was a perfect fit that our nonprofit was geared towards our service men and women.
