Join Backpacks4Kids in supporting our local schools and students! #BP4K2018

2018 is our 6th year supporting our local Title I schools and students with backpacks and all the back to school supplies they’ll need. We are excited to venture further south this year and bring our efforts to the St. Pete area! We have been very fortunate from corporate sponsors, donations and our community outreach events to raise enough money to fill 600 backpacks with all the school supplies needed for a successful school year! We are delivering the 600 backpacks to our (4) sponsored schools on Monday, Aug. 6th!

What is a Title 1 school?

A “Title 1” school has a large concentration of low-income students and receives supplemental funds to assist in meeting student’s educational goals. For an entire school to qualify for Title 1 funds, at least 40% of students must enroll in the free and reduced lunch program. But the help can’t stop there. They need the ongoing support of their community to make sure their students are afforded the same chances as any other student in our county.
