The Backpack Challenge

The Backpack Challenge, as well as Change for Change, will provide over 1,000 students in the NHMI school system with essential school supplies.  With each donation of $20.00, a backpack and limited educational items will be purchased for a 2nd – 6th grader. (Shipping charges are included.)

A Note of Appreciation: We are so grateful to Office Depot and the Office Depot Foundation for the gift of free sackpacks to all of our Kindergarten and 1st grade students through their National Backpack Program.  Thank you so much for your partnership … and to Bob Golden, a precious friend of the Mission, who made sure it happened :-)!
