Project Description

Country: USA

Location: Santee

Total Budget: $1,750

Area of Focus: Basic education and literacy

Activity Type: Education: General

Summary: Backpacks and School Supplies for Children


Many families are not able to afford backpacks and school supplies for their children, yet these items are important to their educational success. Children get more excited about the school year when they have new supplies.

Buddy's Backpacks collects backpacks and school supplies for local children. These items are then distributed to any child who needs one during their distribution day at the local library. Children are allowed to pick their own backpack, which makes them very happy. In the past, books have also been distributed at this event. Last year, 1600 full backpacks were distributed.

Club members will participate by donating money and supplies, in addition to helping sort items. Club members will also help on distribution day in August 2020.
