Our “Back to School” program, in conjunction with Santa Maria Community Center and other partnering groups, provides 1500 children living in the Lower Price Hill neighborhood with backpacks and school supplies. More than 60 volunteers fill over 2,500 backpacks with supplies! Each child receives a colored backpack with all the requested supplies. Many of these children have no pencils or paper of their own, and rely on our donated supplies, to be ready for the first day of school. The children are so thankful to receive the items necessary for the upcoming school year.
