All the backpacks and supplies for the 2012 project were distributed to 1550 students on the free and reduced
price lunch program.
Surplus backpacks and supplies were boxed up, put on pallets and stored at the district warehouse for the 2013 project
Thank you all for your wonderful assistance!!! Mission Statement: Congregations for Kids, a coalition of local congregations, helps students from low income families within the Bellevue, Washington School District have a Good Start Back to School. Partnering with the school district, Eastside businesses, and community organizations, we equip these students with backpacks and supplies needed for the school year.
