Last year, through the generosity of businesses, foundations, associations, faith-based organizations, educational institutions, staff, and community members, MCPS provided 10,823 students with backpacks and school supplies through its MCPS Give Back Packs campaign.
Over 70,000 MCPS students receive free & reduced-price meals and many families struggle to afford basic necessities like school supplies. Your donation plays a critical role in helping ALL students thrive academically, while helping to support beginning of the school years costs for a parent in need. MCPS places orders throughout the summer with a goal of providing as many students as possible with a backpack and supplies at the start of the school year.
For just $20, you can provide a student in need with a backpack filled with school supplies, which could include paper, pencils/pens, crayons/colored pencils, a glue stick, folders, binders, and more. Your donation will help provide students with the necessary supplies to engage successfully in their lessons. Donate here.
