A Backpack Success Story!
Our first project of the year has wrapped up…er, zipped up? The Backpack Project is exemplary of AAUW’s mission and goals. By providing backpacks and associated school supplies to middle schoolers who may otherwise not have one at the start of the year, we’re able to set these well deserving students up for success! This is a great program for the community to participate in at a scalable level and get to know our branch.
This year through the continued donations of time, funds, and supplies of our branch members, community members, and donations from community organizations, our branch was able to expand the project to include children whose homes were structurally damaged or destroyed by the Detwiler Fire.
