3rd Annual Threads for Teens Backpack Back-to-School Event

Back-to-School Backpack Event!

Threads for Teens will be hosting a backpack drive on August 11th, 2012. At this event, one hundred-fifty girls will be given backpacks filled with school supplies, who might not have been able to afford them otherwise. There are four ways that you can help us to reach our goal of 150 backpacks!
  • Sponsor a backpack filled with supplies by donating $30. For $30, Threads for Teens will fill a backpack with your donation.
  • Donate any amount of money, even $5 helps us to getting to our goal of 150 backpacks.
  • Donate a brand-new backpack! We are always looking for more backpacks to fill.
  • Fill a backpack with school supplies and donate it directly to Threads for Teens.

Here is the list of supplies that will be needed in each backpack:
  One backpack
  One notebook
  One red pen
  One pack of blue or black pens
  One pencil holder
  One pair of scissors
  One 12" ruler
