July 5 - July 18
We are thrilled to partner with Atlanta Public Schools to host our first ever Backpack Drive! Atlanta Public Schools hosts a massive Back to School Bash each year with nearly 10,000 students in attendance. At this event, over 6,500 backpacks are given out to students in need, many of which live and go to school right here in Fulton County. For the first year ever, we are asking our community to send these same children back to school this Fall with a brand new backpack. School supplies are generously being provided by the Empty Stocking Fund, so we just need new backpacks to hold all their tools for academic success! Right inside our barn, you’ll find the drop-off where you can unload any brand new backpacks. Think all ages, colors, and sizes!
We are very much looking forward to welcoming our community to join these tremendous efforts in allowing these local students a wonderful start to their school year. Be sure to join us at our Backpack Stuffing Party as well to see all your efforts come to fruition!
