Each year, Partnerships for Children provides over 1,200 backpacks filled with supplies to children in Central Texas who are in the care of Child Protective Services. This year is more important than ever to ensure we are able to send children back to school prepared to learn and feel a sense of dignity when they walk into their classrooms the first day of school. We know many children have fallen behind due to the circumstances surrounding the pandemic, especially since many of those we serve are already at a disadvantage. It is our goal to ensure every child in CPS care has the supplies they need to be successful when they return to school. Over the month of July, we will collect and prepare the supplies to be distributed in early August. We can't meet our goal without your help.
