Welcome to our Backpack Challenge!
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 set a record and collected 3,215 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. Our corporate and community partners are so amazing, we believe we can smash last year’s record by collecting 3,600 backpacks filled with the following supplies:
- 6 Two-Pocket Folders
- 2 Spiral Notebooks
- 2 Filler Paper (Wide Rule)
- 12 No. 2 Pencils
- 1 Colored Pencils (12-pack)
- 1 Three-Ring Binder
3,600 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
