So many children in Bexar County will begin the school year without a backpack. Here at Living Through Giving [LTG], we feel that shouldn’t be the case and will begin our annual event, “Got Your Back” on April 1, 2015.
After collecting more than 800 backpacks during the 2014 backpack drive, LTG will begin collecting backpacks with participating schools and businesses. LTG will aim to break that record and collect new and slightly used backpacks to give to needy children for the upcoming school year. The purpose of the drive is to help children begin the year with the tools necessary to succeed.
“Being able to see the children’s faces light up while going through the backpacks, is such an emotional sight,” Russell Groomer, Living Through Giving founder and owner of Welcome Home Community Newspaper said. “Living Through Giving strives to make an impact in these children’s lives as best as we possibly can.”
If you would like to join us within your business or know of a school that may like to participate, contact us at 210-384-8233.
For every donation of $10.00, Living Through Giving will help a child in need obtain a backpack before the school year begins! Donate below to commit to the cause!
