Kids Backing Kids, Inc. is accepting donations for its annual Back-to-School Backpack drive to help kids and families in need. Whether school this fall is in person, held remotely, or some hybrid model, kids still need school supplies.
We are hoping to help bridge the gap between tight budgets and the cost of back-to-school supplies for more than 250 vulnerable families in the MetroWest region.
Backpacks with all of the necessary school supplies can cost over $100 per child. The financial impact of COVID-19 makes it even harder for many families to afford some of these back-to-school items. These back-to-school backpacks are a symbol of our commitment to ensure equal access to materials that facilitate learning.
Kids Backing Kids, Inc. is a student-run nonprofit organization dedicated to improving the lives of children experiencing poverty, food insecurity, homelessness, and trauma by providing material goods, raising community awareness, and training the next generation of community leaders.
