Backpack Buddies Project
Eligible students from elementary schools in Bullhead City, Fort Mohave, Mohave Valley, Topock, Needles CA, Laughlin NV, as well as, Head Start Schools in Bullhead City, Mohave Valley & Needles, CA will participate in a special Backpack Buddies Dress Kids for Success event.
Each student will receive a backpack filled with school supplies, personal hygiene items and two new uniform shirts, shoes, socks, and undergarments. These may be the first new clothes and shoes that some of our area kids have ever owned. Students who participate in the event are from low-income families living at or below the poverty level.
We believe that every child should start the first day of school feeling good about themselves.The first day of school is stressful, but even more so for the kids who show up in worn out clothes, sneakers with holes, hand-me-down uniform shirts and no school supplies. Our mission is to give everyone the tools, educational supplies and clothing to walk into the new school year feeling self confident and ready to learn.
Legacy Connection and BHHS Legacy Foundation share a common mission and vision, which is to enhance the quality of life and health of those we serve.
