Because of you, we were able to distribute 425 brand-new backpacks filled with school supplies to local children in need. Your generosity has ensured that children will be starting the school year with the basics needed to be successful!
In addition to the backpack giveaway there was also entertainment, BBQ lunch provided for 800 people, as well as 62 boys and girls receiving free haircuts and hairstyles.
Special thanks to the following community supporters who made the back to school season more successful for local children in need:
Great Southern Bank
Watlow Electric Manufacturing Company
Right At Home
Elaine Stevens Beauty College
Keenan & D’ette Miller
Phi Chapter Ayk
Cardinal Ritter College Preparatory High School
Backpacks 4 Babies was created in 2014 to fulfill a need in the St. Louis community. Our goal is to help ease the burden for those families struggling to buy their kids everything they need for a successful school year.
Thank you again for your generosity and investing in the future of our children.
