The Backpack Fund has received an Xbox Series X from a generous donor and we are going to raffle it off to one of our supporters! Donors who make contributions during our end of year fundraising campaign and people who share our message will be added to the raffle. The funds raised throughout the raffle will go towards future scholarships and school supply distributions. The raffle is also a “thank you” to our supporters who have exceeded expectations and trusted The Backpack Fund in its first year of operation. None of The Backpack Fund’s success would be possible without the support we have received from the community.
