In 2017, we filled 1,025 backpacks for our local youth to get them school-ready.

This year, we're hoping to fill 1,300 backpacks for Orange County students in need.


Will You Help?



We know how important it is for children to start off the¬†school year with the appropriate supplies to ensure that they are afforded the opportunities to be successful with their schoolwork. Thank you for helping to improve the dignity of homeless children in our community, and increase their self-confidence and pride so they can realize their hopes and dreams to succeed. Please see the above flyer for our most-needed items for this year’s Back-to-School Backpack Event.
