During this academic year (2019-2020), we will provide more than 5,600 students facing homelessness with fully-stocked and customized backpacks.  

Help collect new backpacks and school supplies to ensure even more students have what they need to succeed in school.

We salute those who rallied behind our efforts and made a difference.  See them listed here!
