It’s hard to believe but many families in the Bay Area struggling with poverty face the challenge of providing school supplies for their children each school year. Can you imagine the burden of buying backpacks and notebooks when you struggle with paying rent and providing food for your family? Join BCC this summer and help low-income kids by providing backpacks with school supplies. We are partnering up with City Team, a non-profit organization that serves the poor and homeless, to host a backpack drive on campus. Our goal this summer is to donate 100 backpacks to City Team!

To find out what supplies are needed in each backpack, where to drop them off, how to donate to the project, or how to volunteer to hand out the backpacks to students in need, visit connectbcc.org/backpacks. For questions, contact vivian.yasutake@connectbcc.org.
