Details

It’s that time of year again! We are filling backpacks to help students succeed. This year, we will be partnering with The Underground. Our goal is to collect and fill 110 backpacks for local students in need and 477 backpacks for children and youth that have been identified by DCF as being high-risk or confirmed victims of domestic minor sex trafficking.

DONATE
Please place items (list below) in the Backpack Basket in our lower lobby by Sunday, July 29.
