What does a backpack mean #forthekids?
This summer, we need to provide 200 kids experiencing homelessness a backpack with everything they need to succeed. For our youth experiencing homelessness, a backpack is more than a carrier of school supplies. Our kids live in unstable housing situations. Often times they have to pack up and relocate with just an hours notice. When all our kids know is instability, having a backpack of their own, to put their own cherished items in means the world to them.
Whether our kids are entering kindergarten or starting their freshman year of college, in a classroom or at home, your contribution gives them the tools and confidence they need to begin their school year filled with hope!
Fill a backpack, end the cycle of homelessness
ONE CHILD AT A TIME.
How to get involved
While we are unable to fill backpacks together in person this year, we can still come together to ensure our kids have backpacks from home!
