Organizers said more families need help due to the rise in inflation.

"As you know, the families in Milwaukee are struggling right now. We don't want the families to make a decision – whether filling the backpacks or feeding their families," said Hasan Dhoondin, the nonprofit's founder.

Milwaukee Mayor Cavalier Johnson also made an appearance at the event to show his support.
