Key Club is hosting a backpack drive for poor children in Chicago during this week.  Backpacks are a luxury to some poorer families in Chicago. These families often reuse the same backpacks making them inadequate.

“We wanted to give poorer children a chance to have a better education. You might think that this is a relatively small item that these kids don’t have, but even one backpack can really change their lives because now they have something to protect their school supplies and they have an easier time learning and striving for a better life,” Junior and Key Club member Pramod Prem said.  

This drive hopes to reenergize kids in these low-income communities and improve their happiness. To many students, the luxury of being able to afford a new bag may seem like something small, but to these kids, this drive may bring them motivation for their school year.

If you would like to donate, please go to the front office and deposit your bookbags in the labeled box.
