Donation and Distribution: Backpacks
8/25/17 under General News Schools & Youth Center
This summer Running Strong’s StudyStrong backpack kits were distributed to help prepare Native Youth for the upcoming school year!
Several our Year 3 Dreamstarters helped distribute backpack kits. Shayleena Britton and Caitlin Bordeaux gave away 400 kits filled with school supplies. Stephan Cheney and his Bear River Band Youth-Program had a back to school event where he distributed 300 backpacks!
Nicole Ebsen, a mother of 3, had some wonderful comments to say about receiving StudyStrong kits.
“We are so lucky to have this program donate to our community. They really have provided so much. They have helped ease some of the expenses the beginning of the school year can bring. Almost all the students have benefited one way or another from their generosity.”
In total, we have distributed 4,915 StudyStrong kits this summer and we couldn’t have done it without the support from our donors, thank you!
Give to help a student StudyStrong!
