PCHP provides children with the skills and knowledge they need to succeed in school and life. The RE(A)D Backpack campaign enables our supporters to ensure that children graduating from PCHP also have the school supplies they need to start school ready in every way. For $25, PCHP donors can provide a red backpack fully stocked with school supplies and books for a PCHP participant to receive at their graduation or moving up ceremony. Thanks to our generous supporters, since 2013 we have provided over 650 backpacks have been purchased.
We hope to continue to expand the RE(A)D Backpack campaign to our sites across the country. Many of our local sites work with families year-round, so you never know when a graduation could be approaching. If you are interested in providing an under-resourced child with a backpack full of school supplies for his/her first day of school, please click here and select the number of backpacks you would like to provide or enter an amount in multiples of $25 into the “Donation Amount” box.
