We Need 600 Backpacks by August 1!

For most kids, the start of a school year is an exciting time filled with new supplies and hope for success. However, for students whose families cannot afford supplies, coming to school unprepared can create social and emotional challenges and put kids at a disadvantage for learning. Many of our students already face challenges in the classroom. Starting the school year with a new backpack filled with school supplies can boost their self-esteem and help them put their best foot forward, knowing that someone cares about their academic success.

We are asking you, our fellow neighbors, to join our efforts to send our students back to school with the supplies to succeed.
