Project Phases

Phase 1: 


     At the end of the school year, The Backpack Squad is vamping up efforts to gather supplies to start filing bags in August, which is only 3 short months away. 

Phase 4


     In the second half of August, we begin sorting all bags and supplies that were donated. 

     Also organizing, so that packing the bags are easier. 

Phase 2


     In June, we dive head first into gathering, staging and purchasing backpacks and school supplies. 

This phase lasts from June - August 15th. 

Phase 5


     The packing begins! All the backpacks are ready for distribution, by the last week of August!! 

This is such an exciting time. 

Happening Now

Phase 3


    New this year! Applications for receiving a backpack stuffed with school supplies. This is not required, yet, and will guarantee you a backpack for this season. 

Phase 6


     All backpacks are handed out to local children. There are 5 meeting spots available for those who registered and 1 location for a Backpack give-away!
