Backpacks filled with essential school supplies do more than ease strained family budgets. They soothe anxieties and first-day jitters for so many children. An educator at a partner school shares the backpacks' reaction on an entire family.
"We had a lot of new students from out of the country and coming here with very little income or no income at all; you can see the relief in their faces when we tell them they don't have to worry about buying anything for them. They even yell out a 'Wow' when they see how pretty they are and that they have color choices." Dalia, Yerba Buena High School.
Thank you on behalf of the students and families because of your generosity!
