Backpack Give-Back

Wed, 7:00 PM TO 9:00 PM Hyatt Place, Bethlehem

Description

In the Lehigh Valley, 1/3 of students are not reading on grade level by the time they reach third grade, which is shown to increase the likelihood that they will drop out of high school.

Nothing sparks a child’s interest in learning and school as having a new book bag filled with school supplies. Providing the basic school supply needs of students before the school year begins helps students feel confident and ready to succeed, relieving a financial burden on lower-income families. As part of our fight against educational disparity, The Junior League of the Lehigh Valley will be providing school supplies and book bags to 450 Pre-K and Kindergarten students in the Lehigh Valley.  Our school partners for this event are:

William Penn Elementary, Lincoln Elementary, Fountain Hill Elemenatry Schools in Bethlehem, PA.

Union Terrace Elementary and Clearview Elementary School in Allentown, PA.

We invite you to join us to help fill 450 book bags with school supplies!

This volunteer event is open to the general public.
