Backpack Heroes West TN 2022

Donate To This Campaign

Every child deserves a great education. They’re counting on heroes like you for that opportunity. A new backpack full of school supplies truly can have a profound impact on a child’s learning experience. You can be a Youth Villages Backpack Hero by donating backpacks filled with school supplies or making a financial contribution to support a child in your community.

Here's how it works
Purchase school supplies and backpacks to help a Youth Villages student start the school year off successfully. Don’t have time to shop? Make a $100 donation and Youth Villages will do the shopping for you.
