Summer Youth Program - Backpack Day

Summer Youth Program – Backpack Day

Aimed at engaging unsupervised and hungry children of the Arbor Hill and Sheridan Hollow neighborhoods, the eleven-week summer program offers recreational activities, crafts, educational field trips and healthy lunches. The program concludes with a backpack giveaway full of new school supplies to begin the school year with confidence.

Last year:

  • 1,033 lunches served
  • 3-15 age range
  • average 21 per day
  • 90 backpacks donated to children for back-to-school

There are so many ways that you can help us help others.
