We’re so excited to announce our first school sponsored Backpack Drive! Desert Mountain High School in Scottsdale, AZ will be holding a Backpack Drive benefiting Be The Hope! They will be collecting new and gently used backpacks for children in Haiti. The homeroom that collects the most backpacks will be thanked with a donut party! Their donations will allow us to use monetary donations on school supplies, which will allow us to reach more kids. We originally envisioned using monetary donations to purchase the backpacks and school supplies. While we still intend to do this, we feel that we can do even more good by allowing schools, churches, individuals, etc to donate backpacks as well. Our main mission is still to provide backpacks full of school supplies to children in Haiti, but by changing our plan just a little we’re hoping to make an even bigger difference. At the end of the day that’s what it’s all about, right?
If you would like to spearhead a Backpack Drive in your school, your child’s daycare, church, workplace, or really anywhere, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. The more Hope Givers we have supporting us, the more successful we will be and, most importantly, the more children we will be able to help.
