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 and it can reduce stress for our youth and families. You can be a Youth Villages Backpack Hero by donating backpacks filled with school supplies or raising crucial funds to support a child in your community.
