166 students to go! Can you help the Annapolis Backpack Collaborative?

Four  weeks ago, there were 2500 Annapolis students in Middle & High Schools that did not have the money to purchase basic back to school supplies.  The Anne Arundel County School Board left them to fend for themselves.

The Annapolis Backpack Collaborative was created to address this challenge..

Through the generosity of our community, the collaborative has delivered more than 1 TON of school supplies.  They have purchased and delivered 2334 backpacks, filled with school supplies: notebooks, binders, paper, pens, markers, and earbuds.

There are still 166 students working without these very basic supplies.  Distance learning during a pandemic is hard enough when you have the tools you need, much less without them.

Can yo help raise the last $2500 to give these students an equal chance.

The collaborative’s  goal was to provide supplies for the students at Annapolis Middle School, Annapolis High School, Bates Middle School, Phoenix Academy, & Mary Moss Academy. The incredible team from the Annapolis Fire Department & the Annapolis Police Department have delivered everything which was purchased.

A $15 donation provides a student with a backpack filled with all their school supplies and a set of earbuds. Donations are being accepted via the Annapolis Police Foundation website: AnnapolisPoliceFoundation.org.
