Lauren Alaina is teaming up with Vera Bradley, Inc. today (Wednesday, August 28th) in Nashville for Blessings in a Backpack, a back-to-school carnival which she will host and distribute 475 backpacks. Students at Whitsitt Elementary School will receive the backpacks complete with weekend food kits. Vera Bradley is matching donations to Blessings in a Backpack up to $50,000. For as little as $130 a year, Blessings in a Backpack can supply a child with a backpack full of weekend nutrition for the entire school year.

Rodney and Rose are also parents to son Ryder Falcon, 20 months, along with Rodney's 17-year-old son, Elijah, from a previous marriage.
