Backpack Drive - You Can Make A Difference

Backpack Drive - You Can Make A Difference

Our annual Backpack Drive ensures that students within the Edgemont community and surrounding area, are equipped with a quality backpack filled with grade appropriate supplies in time for the first day of school. This way, students have the supplies they need to not only do their work, but to enter the classroom on that all-important first day looking and feeling confident and prepared to maximize their academic potential. List of items to donate can be found below.
