Back to School Program
Each year, the community comes together to provide backpacks and school supplies for children in need. In 2022, we provided 1,250 filled backpacks to children in need in our community. You can help ease the financial burden of a new school year for struggling families by donating or volunteering. Sign up will start in May 2023.
July 24-29, 2023
Ways to Help:
Donate Pre-Filled Backpacks
Decide how many pre-filled backpacks you can donate using the average cost per backpack as a guide ($125 high school, $90 middle school and $75 elementary school).
Want to help send a child back to school?
- A $125 donation can buy a backpack and supplies for a high school student.
- A $90 donation can buy a back pack and supplies for a middle school student.
- A $75 donation can buy a backpack and supplies for an elementary school student.
Volunteers are needed to help both with collection and distribution of back packs.
