The time of year is approaching where Community Action Partnership of Orange County gathers monetary donations, backpack donations, and school supply donations for Backpacks for Success! This program ensures a backpack filled with necessary school supplies for Orange County children who are in great financial need.
Did you know poverty affects roughly 100,000 children in Orange County every day?
Or that 78% of low-income students start the school year with no or inadequate school supplies? This puts the student and the teacher at a disadvantage from the very first day of school. A donation of $20 can give a student in need a new backpack filled with all the supplies they need to help them be a more successful student!
Even if you cannot donate, please consider sharing this fundraising campaign link on your professional or personal social media.
You can also help by starting a backpack and/or school supply drive at your place of work or in your local community!
