Preparing for a brighter tomorrow

Why Join Backpacks for Success!?

  • Poverty affects roughly 100,000 children each day in Orange County.
  • 78% of low-income students start the school year with no or inadequate school supplies, putting the student and the teacher at a disadvantage from the very first day of school.
  • Education officials have stated that there are significant numbers of middle school children that never even make it to high school.
  • Children living in poverty should have an equal opportunity in education which begins by first making sure they have the tools that are vital to their success!

Our Goal!

  • Backpacks for Success! will provide 2,000 students in underserved and disadvantaged Orange County School Districts with fully supplied backpacks from donor businesses and organizations.
  • Eligible K-12 students will receive a backpack with: pencils, erasers, colored pencils, crayons, glue sticks, paper, and other grade appropriate items. Backpacks and supplies will be distributed in mid-August!
