Backpack in the Park

.

.

Welcome to the 15th annual Backpack in the Part – Virtual Style!

.
.

Even though some schools are considering virtual schooling this fall, it still requires supplies, and the request for backpacks across Georgia is higher than ever. We will be collecting monetary donations so that we can work with bulk suppliers and obtain backpacks and school supplies at a better price than our donors could individually. Specifically, we can get a backpack AND the supplies for around $25, whereas these items would cost at a minimum $40-$50 in stores. We will also coordinate with beneficiary groups to ensure that our kids have a new backpack with supplies when the new school year starts!

.

We have set a goal of raising enough funds to purchase 3,000 backpacks!

.

Here’s how you can help! From now through July 20, you can click here to make a donation for a virtual backpack. At this site, you’ll also see that we are continuing our silent auction, where proceeds will also go towards the bulk purchase of these backpacks! The silent auction will be available for bidding between July 13 and July 20! Don’t miss out!

If you have any questions regarding the event, please e-mail support@forthekid.org. If you are a participating beneficiary organization and have questions, please e-mail amanda.watson@forthekid.org.
