GIVE A BACKPACK CHANGE A LIFE
GIVE BACKpacks is a drive that provides backpacks filled with essential supplies to Cincinnati children in need. It all started with a single classroom, but with help of individuals and local partners like Cincinnati Children’s, Haney, GE, and Braxton Brewery, we’ve expanded this drive over the years to provide backpacks to every student at Cincinnati’s Ethel M. Taylor Academy. With your help, we can continue our efforts ensuring Cincinnati kids have the tools to learn and succeed in the year ahead.
GIVE BACKpacks program raises money to supply backpacks and school supplies for kids in need. The program began with a single classroom, and has now expanded to an entire school that we work with at the beginning of each school year. Giving children these basic school supplies can help them rewrite their future, draw their dreams and reveal passions that may have otherwise been undiscovered.
Our goal is to GIVE BACKpacks until every child in Cincinnati has what they need to succeed.
Backpacks donated, and counting
Since this drive began, we’ve given over 1,000 backpacks filled with essential school supplies to underserved students at Cincinnati’s Ethel M. Taylor Academy.
