Back to School Backpack Drive

Going back to school can be a daunting time for any student, but it can be especially challenging for foster youth who often struggle with limited resources and support. That's why our Back to School Backpack Drive is so important. Each year, we collect brand new backpacks filled with essential school supplies, including notebooks, pencils, and calculators, to help foster youth start the school year off on the right foot. With the support of our community, we aim to provide every foster youth with the tools they need to succeed in the classroom and beyond. We are looking for partners in the community to hold workplace fundraisers ensuring that foster children are set up for success by providing them with all of the back-to-school supplies they will need to get the year started on the right foot. Also builds great team chemistry and camaraderie.
