LSSI Backpacks 2021

Lutheran Social Services Backpack Campaign a Success!
Fundraising goal: $4500
Actual raised: $6,230!
With over 200,000 school-aged children in foster care, school supplies are needed now more than ever to ensure foster kids can succeed in school.
Did you know? The average child in foster care experiences 3 home changes and loses up to 6 months of academic progress with each move. They are already facing an uphill academic battle; the last thing they should be worried about is making sure they have the correct school supplies.
Helping ensure foster children have what they need to learn allows them the best chance of catching up, building self-esteem, and getting excited for the new school year! Thank you Bethlehem, for sharing your spirit of generosity with these children!
