2015 Backpack Drive
Going back to school can be a child’s least favorite time of the year, but a new backpack can help change their mind! We are having a backpack drive for schools in LAUSD and you can help change a child’s perspective for the whole school year by donating to this event! According to NBC News, a survey was conducted by Huntington Bank, in which states that a backpack along with school supplies for a middle-school student will run an upwards of $312. This is heartbreaking news to families in the Los Angeles Unified School District because more than 80% of low income students in California live at or below the poverty line, according to the LAUSD website. No donation is ever too small and every donation is appreciated not only by us, but by the family you are helping. With your donations you can help a child feel confident and cool when going back to school.
