Every child deserves to start school with the tools they need to succeed academically. However, the average cost of a sturdy backpack filled with school supplies is $79, according to the Huntington Backpack Survey. North Fulton Community Charities (NFCC) annual Back-to-School event helps local children to succeed in school by providing brand new free backpacks filled with school supplies to struggling families. This year with the help of over 220 volunteers, NFCC provided 921 backpacks filled with school supplies to 400 families.

The Centennial Chapter of YMSL volunteered at NFCC on August 4 to help in the huge task of unloading and sorting all of these generous donations from our community. Getting ready for school is an exciting time for Mothers and Sons alike, but when you can’t provide the tools your kids need and deserve it is heartbreaking. Working together on a project like this delivers huge rewards not just for the kids who get the new backpacks and supplies but for the many volunteers who pack love into each and every one.

Getting ready for school is an exciting time for Mothers and Sons alike, but when you can’t provide the tools your kids need and deserve it is heartbreaking. Working together on a project like this delivers huge rewards not just for the kids who get the new backpacks and supplies but for the many volunteers who pack love into each and every one.

Every child deserves to start school with the tools they need to succeed academically. However, the average cost of a sturdy backpack filled with school supplies is $79, according to the Huntington Backpack Survey. North Fulton Community Charities (NFCC) annual Back-to-School event helps local children to succeed in school by providing brand new free backpacks filled with school supplies to struggling families. This year with the help of over 220 volunteers, NFCC provided 921 backpacks filled with school supplies to 400 families.

The Centennial Chapter of YMSL volunteered at NFCC on August 4 to help in the huge task of unloading and sorting all of these generous donations from our community. Getting ready for school is an exciting time for Mothers and Sons alike, but when you can’t provide the tools your kids need and deserve it is heartbreaking. Working together on a project like this delivers huge rewards not just for the kids who get the new backpacks and supplies but for the many volunteers who pack love into each and every one.
