Backpacks for Success
Some kids face the added stress of not being able to afford school supplies when going back to school as well as throughout the school year. It is estimated that the average annual cost of required supplies, according to the Huntington Backpack Project, elementary-school students require about $195 per student per year for supplies; middle school students about $327 per student; and high schoolers about $374 per student. Your team can help offset these costs with our Backpacks for Success program. This program includes very fun activities that can either be tabletop or more active. Teams compete for the items that go in the backpacks. True North can help source a local charity that will ensure deserving kids benefit from your organization’s generosity.
