Make School Backpacks

Each year we are blessed to help hundreds of foster children and teens start the school year off right with brand new backpacks and new school supplies. These supplies are essential so they can be successful in school. We also need packed backpacks all year long. Children and youth usually enter foster care with no personal belongings and have nothing for school. Below is a list of supplies needed inside each backpack (No pencil sharpeners, please!).

These School Backpacks are a great thing to create with your small group, community group, department, school, or troop! Let us know if we can help you get started!
