The Backpack Project, Inc. is a non-profit organization devoted to addressing the educational supply needs of children living in improverised communities. We do this by providing new backpacks, school supplies, school uniforms, books, writing journals, and mentoring programs. We believe that a child, regardless of their social or economic status, should be fully prepared and ready to learn on the first day of school. Without The Backpack Project, Inc. these students would go without the basic necessities needed for school readiness. Let's give every child an equal chance at educational success. Our children are our future and need our support.
Just $50.00 buys one backpack for a child in need. These backpacks not only provide the basic school essentials, they also boost self-esteem, provide hope and encouragement, and shows these students that somebody cares about them and their life success.
