Backpacks of Love Annual Drive: BPL Annual Campaign
Once a year, Extending a Hand delivers more than 450 backpacks for children and more than 100 backpacks for seniors:
The backpacks for children are filled with basic necessities such as clothing, shoes, personal hygiene items, toys, school and reading supplies.
The backpacks for elders are filled with the basic needs supplies including personal hygiene, health, clothing and shoes.
With this program, our Foundation was born, with the idea of supplying these children and the elderly in need with basic and essential items, but the most important thing is to bring them joy and a lot of love, which is what they need the most!
One backpack is only $65 and will include:
shoes (preferable sneakers or long term shoes for daily wear)
pants (preferable jeans)
personal hygiene items
a letter with a message of love from the Sponsor to the designated child
a letter with a message of love from the Sponsor to the designated senior
