Did you sign up to receive a clear backpack? We have great news! Thanks to the many generous community members and donors who stepped up to help, all the families who signed up for free clear backpacks will receive them before the start of school. 

The backpacks have arrived, and they are being sorted and sent to campuses for distribution. For details on how and when they will be distributed, please contact your campus 

If you have not yet signed up to receive a free backpack, you may do so until Friday, Aug. 5 by filling out this Google form. If your student needs a backpack once the application has closed, please contact your student’s campus. 

Thanks to our sponsors and volunteers!
