Join the Tools for School Success Backpack Drive
Eagles in Flight Nation of Churches’ 2016 backpack drive is coming soon!
We hope to provide backpacks and school supplies to 200,000 students served by the Eagles in Flight Nation of Churches nationwide. The annual backpack drive is part of our focus on preparing and enabling low-income children and their families to succeed in school. This year’s drive runs from Aug. 1–18.
Most of the families served by the Eagles in Flight Nation of Churches have an annual household income of $12,000 or less; some have experienced homelessness, domestic violence, foster care experiences, and mental health issues. Your donations help these kids begin the school year with the basic tools needed to be successful students.
Donate or Host a Supply Drive.
Both businesses and individual community members help make the drive a success. You can collect backpacks and supplies at your office, school, faith community, or anywhere. You can also feel free to host friendly competitions among work groups to see who can collect the most.
See below for a list of supplies we are looking for, and contact Netreia Carroll at 619-519-9090 firstname.lastname@example.org. We hope you'll join us to help children learn and succeed nationwide!
