How You Can Help

Upstate Students and Families Need Your Help this School Year

Our 7th Annual Back 2 School Drive event will take place on Saturday, August 5th, 2023 (9am-12pm). Children will be able to receive a free backpack from us filled with the school readiness supplies that they need to fill comfortable at school and succeed in their studies.

Last year, we were able to provide backpacks with school supplies to over 700 children ranging in age from 6-19 years old. This year, we hope to collect enough school readiness supplies for over 800 children in foster care, orphanages, and families who are less fortunate and bring hope to our community, however, we need additional donations to make this goal a reality.

We are collecting donations from May 1, 2023 until July 31, 2023. You can help by donating a backpack to our supply drive (we kindly ask a value of at least $10 for each backpack)! You can also shop from our Amazon Wish List or make a monetary donation (links below).

Donate today and make a meaningful difference in the lives of children and families and help bring our community closer together!
