It’s once again time for Backpack-a-palooza — an important effort to equip at-risk students residing at The HOPE Community* with school supplies for the upcoming school year.

Like most everything in 2020, things will look a little different. This year, to help maintain social distancing, donations are being requested for backpack and supplies. Requested donations of $35/student are being encouraged so that the shopping can be done in bulk for all the students sponsored. With your donation, each student will receive a backpack filled with supplies such as spiral notebooks, folders, pencils, pens, and many other necessary school supplies.

When you make a donation, you will be sent the name and age of the child you are sponsoring before the school year begins. You are encouraged to pray for your student throughout the 2020–2021 school year.

Please sponsor a child by completing the form below before August 2.

Last year, FBCTLH was able to supply over 100 backpacks, giving students a great start to the school year.

*The HOPE Community is Tallahassee’s temporary housing facility for homeless families transitioning to stable housing.
