WHAT IS FILL A BACKPACK?

Fill A Backpack provides backpacks filled with grade-appropriate school supplies to children in need to maximize their academic potential!

WHEN

June 27th to July 17th, 2022

Together we’ve sent over 1,000 students back to school ready to learn with a new backpack and grade appropriate school supplies in the last four years. This year we’re supporting A Precious Child to serve over 21,000 children across their eight-county service area of Adams, Arapahoe, Boulder, Broomfield, Denver, Douglas, Jefferson and Weld counties. 

As a result of the Fill A Backpack program ... 

  • 92% of recipients are more excited to go back to school.
  • 95% of caregivers report that their children feel more confident in their ability to succeed in school.
  • 93% of caregivers report that their child is more interested in learning.
  • 80% of caregivers report that their children have better relationships with their peers.

Here’s how you can help:

  • Bring donations (from supply list at link above) to Trinity Sunday's or weekday office hours through July 17 and place in the yellow bins 
  • Donate online: https://trinityumc.org/give/ - select Fill A Backpack 2022 in the dropdown box
  • Donate cash or check payable to Trinity UMC with Fill A Backpack designation

Thank you for helping another family this year, ensuring that all children have what they need to go back to school confident and ready to learn!
