Purchase a backpack to help 24,000 area children, veterans and people experiencing homelessness. Each backpack will contain supplies for middle school students or personal care items and non-perishable food products to be distributed to partnering schools and member nonprofits.
Although we are fortunate to live in an area with a stable economy, that includes some of the wealthiest counties in the country, many of our neighbors are vulnerable and at risk of not meeting their basic needs including personal care items and food items to stay healthy and supplies to be prepared for school.
