There are several ways you and your family can help someone be equipped to learn and succeed. Look for the backpack boards and bins in the synagogue lobby. You can turn in your donation at the synagogue backpack bin or at JFS SV at the Levy Family Campus. You can donate a full backpack for a needy student based from a requested supply list, you can purchase Target gift cards, or buy from JFS' online registry. Check JFS' web site http://www.jfssv.org/equipped-to-learn-backpack-drive.html for details.
