Backpacks for Irvine Students
Hundreds of Backpacks Each Year to Students in Irvine
Each year, about 65 Rotarians pack 250+ backpacks with supplies and attending an event to distribute these backpacks and others at the Boys and Girls Club.
Backpacks are filled with essential school supplies for each student. The provider of the backpacks and supplies, Educational Products, Inc. discounts the supplies for this project.
The project provides these students with the support that they may not otherwise have due to their socio-economic positions. Each student has the confidence to begin the school year and succeed.
Members participate in the assembly of the backpacks at a Club meeting, then the Rotary Club of Irvine works directly with the Boys and Girls Club to distribute the backpacks.
The Boys and Girls Club invite media to the distribution event, at which we volunteer to distribute thousands of backpacks each year.
