StreetWise Georgia | Annual Backpack Day Event

 

This event is designed to provide children of families living below the poverty level with the appropriate and necessary supplies needed for the upcoming school year.

Due to many of our client families’ financial situations, they are unable to provide their children with proper school supplies.

Of all the reasons that a child could list for why they wouldn’t want to go back to school… not having what they need shouldn’t be one of them!

Our Annual Backpack Day event is held at both of the StreetWise locations (Lawrenceville & Auburn) on the same day. All families that receive assistance have been preregistered at our Lawrenceville facility and have set appointment times. First, a short program featuring a gospel presentation helps to ensure that everyone who attends understands that we are gladly giving in the name of Jesus Christ and that he has made a way for us to have hope in Him!

The families are then escorted to where the children receive their very own backpack, packed specially for their grade and gender. As an added bonus, all parents that attend the program will leave with groceries for their entire household!

Through donations from generous members of our community and taking a Saturday to volunteer your time, the StreetWise Georgia Backpack Day event will ensure that every child receives every opportunity to succeed this school year!
