OVER 800 STUDENTS RECEIVE
BAGS OF JOY

AmeriCorps Alumna, Joy Capers, developed Bags of Joy in 2011 when she realized that many of the children at her school site in rural St. Stephens may go without basic needs such as hygiene items over the Christmas break. 

This year, members were able to provide bags to over 800 students, exceeding the requests of 750 bags.
