Big Smiles


Our volunteers have the opportunity to see the genuine smiles on the kids faces when they are escorted through the "store" to select their new items.  For some kids, these are the first pair of new shoes they have ever owned.

What is Backpack Buddies?

Eligible students (see Eligible Students tab) will receive a new backpack filled with hygiene items and school supplies, a new pair of sneakers, 3 pair of socks, 3 pair of underwear, and 2 uniform shirts.

Every Kid Should Start School on the Right Foot
