Project Backpack is an organization of volunteers to fill backpacks that contain "new" emergency and comfort items for children infant to teens.
Our project is about reaching out to ask your help to support our mission. The children we serve are often described as sad and vulnerable by the police departments and social workers. Our backpacks are a powerful tool to help these professionals ease the trauma as the child moves to a safe environment. The backpack tells the child that someone cares when their whole world is crashing around them. These are for children removed because of abuse, neglect, inflicted trauma, or natural disaster.
