Wellness in the Bag 


Wellness in the Bag was an Independent Health Foundation initiative that connected over 12,000 Western New York individuals and families with essential supplies during the COVID-19 pandemic. The intended purpose of this project was to bridge gaps that families may have been experiencing due to lack of access, diminished financial resources, and the current strain on supply chains. Thank you to our amazing sponsors and vendors for making these wellness bags possible!
