Christmas comes early for the children helped by Boston Health Care for the Homeless when they receive backpacks from their personal "Santa" this August. Each backpack is greeted by a smile, a hug, and lots of laughter, and we can only imagine what promises this school year holds for each of them. Good luck BHCHP!
If you're interested in what Backpacks for Kids has been up to this summer, we'll keep you updated on the pictures page of this site, as well as on Facebook and Twitter.
Some of the kids we help return to school today, and luckily over 300 kids in the Boston area have received their filled backpacks. We predict one more fun day of packing backpacks, and with three deliveries/pick-ups to go, we are still encouraging donations. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
