An annual drive to provide backpacks and school supplies to over 1,000 kids.
Each year, Agape collects and distributes new backpacks filled with school supplies for 1,000 underserved students in pre-school through high school. Get involved by holding your own backpack drives or sponsoring a backpack filled with supplies for $50 per child!
Community support for the Great Backpack Give-Away continues to exceed our imagination each year. In 2014, Agape provided backpacks filled with school supplies for more than 1,600 children! WSB at Agape
