508 Forever Young Back 2 School Backpack Giveaway

Early literacy has proven to have a significant relationship with graduation rates across a variety of contributing factors.

According to research, third graders who are not at grade level are among the most vulnerable to drop out of school later. 

At the first Back 2 School Backpack Giveaway in 2017, we gave away 500 filled backpacks and have since grown year after year. This year we set the bar higher in hopes to give away 3,000 filled backpacks with supplies and with your assistance WE WILL REACH OUR GOAL!

Due to Covid 19 our kids will face many challenges as they return back to school full time. We are committed to atleast giving them the tools they need to succeed. 

Thank You!
