During this academic year (2018-2019), we expected to provide 2,000 students facing homelessness with fully-stocked and customized backpacks.  When the demand grew to twice that number, we found the generosity of our contributors kept pace!  More than 4,000 students throughout the Commonwealth received the grade-level tools they needed to keep up with their peers.  

If you're looking to make a difference for kids in need this summer, consider contributing to our backpack and school supply program so that even more children and teens begin the school year well-prepared.  

We salute those who rallied behind our need and made a difference this year - see them listed here!
