Provide a Backpack for a Child in Need

You can help strike a blow against poverty and homelessness. With your help, Cityteam can help a younger person who may be at high risk for hunger, falling behind in school and ultimately dropping out.

By filling a backpack with school supplies, you can help someone like Johnny. His dad worked hard to provide but it was a struggle to buy food, pay rent and keep the electricity on. Unfortunately, Johnny’s dad recently lost his job and no longer could afford the items most of us take for granted. Thankfully, Johnny and his dad were able to came to Cityteam for meals and because of generous people like you, he will have all the needed supplies as he prepares to start 3rd grade next year.

  • 3–ring binder
  • Lined paper
  • #2 pencils
  • Pencil sharpener
