Be a Backpack Hero


This year, we expect to serve more than 1,000 Middle Tennessee children for Backpack Heroes and we need all the help we can get.   Be a Backpack Hero and help the youth we serve have the school supplies they need to go back-to-school.  Please consider donating a new backpack and school supplies or financially sponsoring a child to ensure they are prepared to start the new school year.
