Children living in poverty start their school year at a large disadvantage. Without crucial school supplies, these students cannot fully participate in classroom activities or complete their homework. SOS’s annual Back To School Program was launched in 1994 with the goal of closing the educational gap for low-income K-12 students.
Last year’s program provided approximately 4,000 backpacks filled with school supplies to local students. With your support, we will continue to grow both the number of students served as well as the resources offered. Thank you for helping us bring joy and learning to those in need.
