16th Annual Backpack and School Supplies Drive
Give the Gift of Education - Donate a backpack so a child can attend school.
It seems unbelievable that a child living in poverty in Honduras cannot attend public school because they don’t have school supplies, $1.85 per month for fees, a uniform, and shoes. This is the reality in Honduras, one of the poorest countries in the world.
In 2004 Carlos Zapata was determined to make sure more children could get a chance to have a formal education. He convinced each of his friends to donate a backpack for a child. All together, he gathered more than 60 schoolbags and a tremendous amount of school supplies, which made it possible to fill each bag.
Last year, thanks to your generosity, the AJCCF Backpack Drive raised enough donations to provide 1,400 children with a backpack filled with supplies and the chance to attend school.
You can ensure a child can go to school by donating $30.00 for a backpack filled with school supplies.
