Backpacks for Kids


The Backpacks for Kids program is a community-wide drive to collect back-to-school supplies and backpacks to benefit Northshore students whose families are unable to send their children to school with necessary school supplies.

Over 12% of the students in Northshore qualify for free and reduced lunch, and many more are navigating unforeseen circumstances or are not receiving the support their family may need. Backpacks for Kids is how you can support them.
