Why fill backpacks?

You can help 100 children facing adversity go back to school with pride. For some of the lower-income youth mentored in our school-based programs, the cost associated with purchasing school supplies can be a strain on the family. Help pay the $12 fee to fill backpacks with glue sticks, pencils, paper, pens, rulers, and other necessary school supplies, so these deserving kids can go back to school with all the right tools.
