Last Year

Last summer, through the generosity of many companies and individuals, we were able to pack 1,200 backpacks full of school supplies, and distribute them to homeless/low-income children through our partners: Rebele Family Shelter, Walnut Avenue Women’s Shelter, Elm Street Mission, Live Oak School District, Project Access, Project Access, Sunburst Project, New Families, Hope’s Closet, Families Together and Barrios Unidos.

Our Mission

Our mission is to assist low-income / homeless families by providing the tools necessary for their children to be confident and successful in school. We accept donations of new or gently used backpacks. Plus donations for backpacks and school supply kits can be made via our online store. Our goal for 2018 is to distribute 1,150 backpacks!
