2019 Build-A-Backpack!

For many of our program participants with school-age kids, purchasing backpacks and school supplies can be cost prohibitive. They need to focus on paying for basic living expenses like food and rent. Please consider supporting our families this summer.

Donate Backpacks:Volunteer your time to lead a backpack drive in your community. Gather your friends, co-workers and /or family to help gather donations or purchase items and pack backpacks. Backpacks need to be donated by July 23, 2019!
