Blessings come in all shapes and forms, but this kind of blessing comes from a backpack.

Starting this school year, 100 Domus students from Stamford will receive a backpack of meals to go home with every weekend.  

Behind this are two local women Tina Kramer and Shawnee Knight.  They set out 6 months ago, fundraising for a local chapter of the national charity, blessings in a backpack.

Grade A Shoprite in Stamford is providing the meals, which have been selected by the store's dietitian.   

Thursday, Grade A delivered the first batch of groceries to a private home, with plenty of helping hands to start stocking shelves.  The shelves were donated by Grade A. 

Duggan says 90 percent of students at Domus qualify for free or reduced lunch.  That's why he says Kramer  and Knight were like angels who dropped on his door step.
