Where We Are Right Now

After an extremely succesful year of providing 505 backpacks to children in need, we are now seeking new donors and planning for next year's drive! We have maintained relationships with 10 different service agencies, and they have continued to rely on our support since 2001.


Why participate? Backpacks for Kids focuses on the one thing that children need in order to be succcessful: their education. You can help make a difference in a child's life. Please see our donate section for more details.
