Backpack Drive

Friday, August 4, 2017

Why are we holding a Backpack Drive? There are lots of little things needed to start a kid off in a new school year. Put all together, the costs can really start to add up for a family of limited means.

CASA’s annual Backpack Drive helps us equip children with backpacks and other supplies so they're fully prepared for the start of school. We need to ensure that every child excells in school, even if under turmoil caused by domestic violence.

Please Bring Donations to 1011 First Ave N, St. Petersburg (second floor) on August 4, between noon and 4pm.

Contact us at info@casa-stpete.org / 727-895-4912 for information.

**Items Needed:**

  Variety of backpacks for all age levels and genders
  Colored Folders MUST BE 3 prong with pockets
  Scissors (both blunt and sharp)
  3 x 5 index card packs
