Each year this program ensures that less advantaged children in our community will enjoy a smooth transition into the coming school year by providing backpacks filled with supplies to children from Junior Kindergarten through High School.
Our goal is to provide each child with a quality backpack filled with grade level appropriate items… binders, refill paper, scribblers, report covers, pencil crayons, pens, pencils, rulers, and the list goes on.
This program is made possible through the many kind donors in the community who provide donations of new backpacks and supplies, and also the loyal volunteers who help package and distribute the backpacks.
Registration begins at the beginning of August. Please click here to register for the program >>
