The Problem

22% of US children grow up in poverty, making it hard to afford items like backpacks and other school supplies.

The Solution

Collect gently-used backpacks in your neighborhood to help make sure every student is ready to head back to school. Let's round 'em up and donate them to your local Boys & Girls Club.
