BatchPacks for Kids is our back-to-school initiative to prepare students to start the school year off right! Along with a BatchPack, an array of school supplies are also donated to local students. Over 5,000 BatchPacks have been given out since the program has started. The students are also in the spirit of giving back to the community by being given the option to donate their old backpacks to others in need. Read! 365, a program of Beginning with Books, provides book donations for the students.
