Annual Backpack to School Drive

It’s that time of year again! Our kids will be going back to school soon, and we need your help to make sure that none of our children feel different than their peers on the first day back.


Using new supplies that you donate to us, we fill the backpacks of each child in our program according to the specific lists we receive from their teachers. Every year you do an amazing job donating the supplies we need to fill all of those backpacks.


In 2017, you helped 182 CHILDREN from 88 LOCAL FAMILIES! Thank you!


This program is only possible because of your support. Thank you for setting our kids up to succeed!
