Thanks to the generosity of supporters like you, we collected 538 backpacks for Hope Solutions students. The backpacks, filled with the supplies needed for a successful school year, were delivered to the children in our programs just in time for the first week of school
Through a hybrid model of our backpack drive, we received donated supplies directly from supporters through an online sign-up and our local partner, Sydney Paige Foundation. Thank you for helping us accomplish our goal and for playing a part in our children’s achievements, whether through purchasing supplies and backpacks, making a purchase through Sydney Paige, or contributing a monetary donation.
We appreciate and are grateful for all our faith and civic community partners who played an important role in reaching our goal. As our client programs have expanded over the years with more youth, we are grateful to see the ongoing and growing support we receive from the community to continue providing the necessary tools for the children in our program to continue succeeding in school. Hope Solutions provides academic support, which includes assistance with homework, life skills, and various academic enrichment activities to encourage students to continue school. We are proud to say that 100% of the students in our youth enrichment program advanced to the next grade this year.
