As our students get ready for the start of school each fall, they often lack backpacks as well as school supplies, such as notebooks, pencils, tape, glue, and binders.

To meet that need, every year several local churches and organizations help outfit our students for the back to school season!

Volunteers organize backpack and school supplies drives with the goal of providing a new backpack stuffed with supplies for every single one of our students.

Each backpack is designed for a particular age and gender – so the girls get to enjoy their Hello Kitty backpacks and the boys get their Spider Man paraphernalia.

Having a new backpack gets our students excited about the start of school, plus it is a tremendous help throughout the year to have the various supplies they need to complete their homework.
