Donors have raised over $7,000 to help students in the district get access to school supplies and award one $1,000 scholarshiop to a 2020 Riverside graduate!
Now it's time to give out the school supplies you all have helped us obtain! The Backpack Fund's directors and a few kind volunteers will be distributing supplies that support over 500 students!
We will be in a school bu loaded to capacity with the classroom materials that will be making its way around the Riverside Local School District to reach as many studens as possible. Stop by any location and pick up a backpack full of all you need for grades K-12!*
Distribution runs on a first-come, first-served basis. Again, there will be over 500 backpacks worth of supplies, so don’t worry if you come to the last spot; we will save at least 100 backpacks for each location! Families/students can come to any location during the listed timeframes!
Staff at The Backpack Fund and volunteers will take additional measures to protect the community and themselves from COVID-19.
*Backpacks contain: 13 pencils, 3 pens, 4 erasers, 1 highlighter, 1 pencil sharpener, 3 glue sticks, 1 box of crayons, 1 ruler, 1 pair of scissors, 2 expo markers, 1 large pencil case, 4 folders, and 3 notebooks.
