Youth Villages and the Young Professionals for Youth Villages invite you to be a Backpack Hero at a night of fundraising and networking at the 2018 School Supply Shindig. This event will raise funds to provide new backpacks and school supplies for more than 350 youth participating in our programs in Massachusetts and New Hampshire who come from families living below the poverty line.

Enjoy complimentary apps, a raffle featuring gifts and entertainment packages from local businesses, as well as a cash bar!

100 percent of the event donations will be directed to help our at-risk youth successfully start the school year.
