In partnership with local community-minded businesses and organizations, we collect and distribute backpacks filled with school supplies to over 300 students, with the demand climbing year after year. We feel that providing these items for students give them the ability to start the school year off on the right foot to focus on learning and their future success!

Back to School clients come from a variety of backgrounds, including:

  • Children of single mothers or fathers
  • Children of working families trying to make ends meet
  • Children of seniors with custody of their grandchildren
  • Children of new immigrant families
