Since 2006, For the Kid in All of Us has hosted Backpack in the Park, a fabulous afternoon event with one goal: to collect backpacks and school supplies for Georgia’s children in need. Backpacks collected through this campaign are donated to local non-profit organizations that serve children who would otherwise not have all of the shiny new school supplies needed for a positive, confident and fresh start to the school year.

Last year we collected 2,300 backpacks, but even with such a successful turnout, our beneficiaries asked for more to meet the needs of their organizations and children.

This year’s Backpack Challenge is even greater. We’re setting ourselves up for a mighty goal, but we know that we can do it—WITH YOUR HELP.  2,750 is a lot of Backpacks to collect. Each represents a child that will head off to school with the supplies needed for a positive and confident start to the school year. We need YOUR help in making this a reality.  Follow the steps below to sign up and participate in this year’s Backpack Challenge.
