Backpack Drive - Through November 12

Five years ago, our students of Bellingham High School created and donated to a drive that provided backpacks for the homeless. Each backpack contained hygiene products, non-perishable foods, hats, scarves, and gloves. These backpacks were handed out by our students to the homeless in DC during our 8th grade trip to our capital. It was such a rewarding and profound experience for our students that we have continued this yearly project. Last year, we also teamed up with All Saints Church in Woonsocket, RI and provided backpacks for the homeless that they provide free lunch every day. This year, we would also like to provide food and hygiene products to our school’s food pantry to help our students and families in need.

While we are counting on the generosity of our students and families of our school, we need your help in accomplishing our goal of creating 100 backpacks and providing hygiene and food products to the needy in our community. You can help by providing individual items, a filled backpack, or a monetary donation. Please see the attached list of items needed below. Would you please consider helping us achieve our mission? Please see list below of items needed.
