Backpack Attack!

Sponsor a pack

For a $35 donation we can provide a complete backpack filled with all of the school supplies that a child needs to begin school. This is a great way to help a child in need get off to a good start, especially after last year’s virtual schooling.  

July 1- mid September

New filled backpacks are distributed to children in need in the Merrimack Valley. They are distributed by the many agencies that we partner with in the Lowell and Lawrence area.

Sponsor a Classroom: $700 provides 20 filled backpacks

Donate: School supplies and new backpacks
