Backpacks for Homeless Children

Backpacks for Homeless Children

As children across the region prepared to head back to school this fall, one of our partners, Brothers and Sisters Keepers Outreach, made us aware of a local shelter that is home to a large population of children without access to school supplies. Enlisting the help of the Metropolitan Police Department, we co-sponsored a back-to-school event where more than 300 backpacks full of school supplies were donated to children and youth. There is great joy in seeing happy faces begin to feel equipped for a great school year.
