2018 Backpack Drive

Help kids go back to school ready to learn

The United Way of Tri-County is running their annual back-to-school backpack program! United Way is committed to helping children and youth succeed and ensuring every young person is ready to learn. The program is a combined effort between area businesses and employees to provide backpacks and school supplies for the upcoming school year. For over 24 years this program has been providing local children and youth with backpacks full of grade-specific supplies to ensure they start the school year ready to learn. 

 

Last year alone we partnered with 30 companies and 13 community agencies
to provide over 700 backpacks to neighborhood children.
