Launched in 2004, Backpacks For Kids is our 'Signature Project'. We supply a new backpack with school supplies to public school children in grades K - 5, high school students enrolled in the STEP (Students in Transition Empowerment Program) program, as well as to partner agencies. Since program's inception we have donated over 14,000 backpacks. Each year, we serve approximately 1,500 area school children. Learn more about the program and how you can help.
