Celebrating 20 years for Backpack Buddies Club

Help us celebrate making a difference for the last 20 years!!

We, my sister and I along with our kids, delivered our first backpacks to the Elgin Community Crisis Center in 2001. Since then, we have donated over 8,500 filled backpacks with necessary items for local children in need.

Want to help us continue to make a difference? We are raising money to benefit our non-profit organization, Backpack Buddies Club. Any donation will help make an impact. We are planning on filling backpacks with school supplies this summer and winter items, (hats, gloves, blankets, toiletries, etc.) for the fall. These backpacks will be delivered to children in Grayslake, Hainesville, Round Lake, and Elgin.

We want to make 2021 a year to remember by providing children with the tools they will need to succeed in school, and also to help keep their ears warm this winter.

To learn more about us, check out our old website at www.backpackbuddiesclub.com.

Thanks in advance for your contribution to this cause that means so much to me and my family.
