Why Build a Backpack?

While some school districts are able to give their students supplies, others provide parents a list of items to buy. This puts an added pressure on those in our community who are already struggling to get by.
It also offers a chance to support those in the Metrowest Community
while teaching children about the importance of service and giving back.

Who do they Benefit?

Filled backpacks will be distributed by JFS Staff to the students in JFS’ Reducing Achievement Gaps program and others throughout the Metrowest area.
*Remember you must bring a backpack to fill with supplies and then leave the filled backpack with JFS to be donated!
