Thank you so much for offering to be our Host Site again!
We see the challenges that the people we help everyday face. Sometimes providing the basic necessities for their children to start another school year is impossible. We believe every child deserves to attend school with all the basic supplies necessary to succeed at school.
Past and Current GOALS:
In 2008 we distributed 1,800 filled backpacks!
In 2009 we distributed 2,242 filled backpacks!
In 2010 we distributed 1,958 filled backpacks!
In 2011 we distributed 2,214 filled backpacks!
In 2012 we distributed 2,246 filled backpacks!
With your help we'd like to distribute 2,200 filled backpacks.
