Our 1st Annual Packz4Kidz backpack event will be launched in Colorado Springs in 2020. As a former teacher for Denver Public Schools, our Founder saw first-hand children arriving on the first day of school without the necessary supplies to be successful and feel like everyone else. It is our goal this year to provide 250 low-income children in Colorado Springs with new backpacks full of school supplies to ensure they start the first day of school with the confidence and supplies they need to be successful.
Each child will be able to pick out a new backpack full of school supplies. Waterbottles and lunch boxes will be given out on a first-come, first-served basis as we cannot guarantee one for every child.
Children in grades pre-kindergarten through 12th grade will be served. Children are encouraged to attend but not required. If children do not attend, a birth certificate for each child is required.
