Back-to-School Backpack Program Success!
Thank you for giving 170 kids in need essential school supplies!
The generosity of our community supporters never fails to amaze and inspire us. Thanks to 103 donors and our incredible staff and volunteers, we’ve raised an amazing $29,758, surpassing our goal of $25,000 to give 170+ Marin students backpacks, school supplies, and clothing gift cards.
We would also like to thank our corporate partner, Ultragenyx, who mobilized their staff to support the event via donations and on-site volunteering, and Camelbak, who provided high-quality, discounted water bottles that we were able to include with every backpack. Thank you!
We were so grateful to bring back our in-person Back to School Backpack Program Pick Up Party this year! On Wednesday, August 10th, registered families lined up at our campus in San Rafael to select their new backpacks, supplies and gift cards. They also enjoyed delicious smoothies that were generously donated by Juice Girl Mill Valley.
