Backpack Drive

August 6, 2019 | 6:00pm – 8:00pm

Help Local Kids Start School Right

The Backpack Drive is put on every August so that low-income kids in Fayetteville and surrounding areas can start back to school with everything they need. These backpacks are packed by their peers and the way we do it is unique. LeadforOne supplies all of the supplies for the backpacks through generous donors and partners in the area. This event is open for families to sign up for together and serve together. Once you get there, you can expect to be assigned a specific role in order to efficiently pack the hundreds of backpacks that get packed.

The backpack drive is always catered, so expect to enjoy a meal while you serve the fellow families of Fayetteville.
