Backpack Donation Drive!

July 21 - July 31

Backpacks are coming for our StreetWise kids to get ready to head Back-To-School!  

Wow! where does the time go?  School starts for Gwinnett and surrounding counties the first week of August.  Each year StreetWise Georgia provides Backpacks for the kids of our Clients to help alleviate some of the nervousness by providing a new backpack with the items on each student’s supply list.

Last year we provided over 400 students with backpacks and school supplies, and this year we are aiming for 600 students to receive a backpack.  The need is great, and we have been blessed with financial donations from our partners, small businesses, and individuals, but we are still falling a bit short.
Would you like to help?

You can help a child get ready for school by donating the cost of a filled Backpack.  It is easy!  The cost of a brand-new backpack filled with the necessary supplies to help a Pre-K/Kindergarten child is as little as $40.00, for an Elementary School child $50.00, and for a High School student $60.00.

Just click on the Donate Today! button and in the ‘Add special instructions to the seller’ field you can note which child you are wanting to donate a filled backpack.  You can also send donations via mail to:  StreetWise Georgia   P.O.Box 657  Dacula, Ga. 30019.

Thank you for your generous support & you are making a difference in a child’s life.
