Imagine how difficult it is for people barely making enough to pay their rent to fulfill basic needs for their family. One of the most expensive items on a school supply list is a backpack. For this reason, SCN is sponsoring a #Back(Pack)2School drive to help provide brand new backpacks for the children we serve. We are sharing a link to an Amazon wish list filled with colorful backpacks to help brighten each child’s first day back at school – please consider purchasing one to help make that happen!
