Fill the Backpack!

The Difference Maker Club needs your help!

The Fill the Backpack Mission

One of the missions for this year's Difference Maker club is to provide survival backpacks for the homeless. The goal is to stock each backpack full of items to improve the health, safety, and general well-being of those in need. Each backpack will be hand-delivered by our students to the homeless in the Denver Metro area. The Difference Makers need your help to accomplish our mission. ​
