Last Call: City Impact Backpack Donation Drive Ends August 7
City Impact (cityimpact.org) is a non-profit organization with a mission to minister to vulnerable communities through wholistic youth, family and neighborhood development.
In an effort to mentor, teach, empower and transform our urban neighborhoods, events are held throughout the year that aid in local youth’s ability to become successful leaders.
Throughout the summer, City Impact is collecting backpacks for elementary, middle and high school students. The goal is to have backpacks in the hands of all 200 youth served by City Impact by the beginning of the school year.
It’s hard for students to focus on their education when they lack necessities. Carrying a brand new backpack on the first day of school gives students an extra boost of confidence to start the year off well.
Thank you to Scheels for their generous donation of 25 backpacks to support the kids at City Impact!
You can help reach that goal of 200 by bringing a new backpack to City Impact on or before August 7, or making an online donation at cityimpact.org.
City Impact’s biggest need is for teen backpacks – large and sturdy bags for middle and high school students. Help a student start the school year off right with a new backpack!
