Backing up students with backpacks!

/ / Blog Post

Thanks to the generosity of the community we have distributed a whopping 1,626 backpacks stuffed with school supplies to low-income students in Contra Costa County. This exceeded our goal of 1,300 thanks to the generous support of our donors in the community.

Each year our Project Ready-to-Learn program focuses on providing school children with the tools needed to succeed! Groups like the mother-daughter National Charity League of Rolling Hills (above) who donated their time to assemble nearly 450 backpacks, help us prepare students for the school year and compete with their more affluent classmates. Thank you also to the following organizations for stuffing backpacks for us or for donating packs ready to go:
