Annual Pack A Backpack™ Drive 2021 Gratitude



May was National Foster Care Month. Coronavirus was still an active health threat at that time. Although the plan was to host my Annual Pack A Backpack™ Drive from April 30, 2021 – May 30, 2021, the Pack A Backpack™ Drive concluded its final delivery in September.

Our Pack A Backpack™ Drive 2021 goal was to fill 50 new backpacks with new personal hygiene items and deliver them to 5 agencies serving teen males in group homes, foster homes, and homeless shelters. We missed the mark, but we still made an impact.

I am grateful for my special donors and proud that during this ongoing global health pandemic we were able to provide 34 new backpacks filled with new toothbrushes, toothpaste, mouthwash, deodorant, lotion, soap, hand sanitizer, and face masks to:

  1. Hearts & Homes for Youth
  2. Sasha Bruce Youthwork
  3. Family & Youth Initiative

2021 Pack A Backpack™ Drive Donors:
