Our annual backpack drive started because of one student’s desire to help his classmate. The students were involved in a homework program, and they could earn points to get prizes. There was one student who was saving all his points, and when asked why, he said that he was saving it for a friend who did not have one. Since then we have given out around 600 backpacks a year to people in the community. We have partnered with many businesses and churches around the area who collect backpacks for the annual drive.
