In just its first year, The Backpack Fund distributed over 500 backpacks to students in the Riverside Local School District and across Lake County, easing psychological burdens on the students and schools while making them feel a part of the community.
The Backpack Fund is continuing its support of students in need in 2021! As you know, our 2020 campaign was a total success, and YOU donated 224 backpacks full of supplies directly to students. Over 300 more were donated to Riverside. All we did was the delivery.
