The Back 2 School Backpack Program originated through Families Feeding Families Organization. This program provides backpacks and supplies to students in our community. As with any program we represent, there is no qualification process for receiving the assistance. We will continue to offer supplies throughout the year.
This program is reaching families who simply have trouble making ends meet. We see two-parent, working families receiving help as well as single parents. Many people have difficulty with the rising costs of living expenses, and "extras" are just not always possible.
We appreciate every person, family, business and organization who graciously donate to this program.
In the first year of providing school supplies and backpacks (2004-2005) - OVER 60 backpacks with supplies were given away. This school year (2015-2016) the Back 2 School Backpack and School Supplies Giveaway has provided 2,321 backpacks and school supplies so far this academic year. Thank you to each of you who give so generously.
Cumulatively, over 18,657 backpacks with supplies have been shared with our community and neighbors. Thank you for your giving hearts.
