Backpacks / Uniforms

In July of each year, we hold a backpack and uniform drive. Supplies are  personalized for each student so they can begin the school-year prepared for their unique school assignments. Check back in July for these individual assignments. Meanwhile, we can always use the supplies below because backpacks wear out, and we utilize a bank of supplies for homework and school projects. Thank you!
