Helping kids go back to school on the right foot
Imagine how excitement could turn to trepidation if going back to school meant a supply list filled with items that a family might not be able to afford. Your parish can sponsor backpacks for children in your community!
How does it work?
FOCUS will send you as many brand-new backpacks as your parish can commit to sponsoring. Parish families will take the backpacks home and fill them with supplies on a packing list included in the backpack. Also included in the backpack is a $10 donation envelope to FOCUS to cover the cost of the backpack.
Once filled, parishioners return the packs to church and the coordinator delivers them to a local FOCUS partner that works with children in need.
We hope to work with you and your local schools this fall!
