The Urban League of Greater Hartford Young Professionals, an auxiliary of the Urban League of Greater Hartford, is seeking your support of our 2016 Annual Back-to-School Backpack giveaway & Community event, The First Day, The Right Way. In 2016, with the assistance of like minded community organizations and individuals, we were able to distribute 446 backpacks to students in the Greater Hartford community. Each backpack was filled with notebooks, pens, crayons, and other supplies to help students beginning the new school year.
With your support, we want to celebrate the start of the school year by providing as many children as possible with the necessary tools to be successful. For 2017, we hope to increase our efforts and distribute 600 backpacks filled with school supplies on Saturday, August 26, 2017.
We hope that you will consider making a donation and helping us reach our goal. We are looking to serve students K-4 and 5 – 8, but any and all donation, regardless of size, will be gratefully accepted.
We thank you in advance for your support as we continue Empowering Communities and Changing Lives.
