JULY BACKPACK DRIVE

MISSION

(JULY 1-22)

Education is one of the most powerful resources available to a young person. Nearly all parents want their kids to get a good one, and they desire to equip their students with everything they need to be successful.

For families in the South Atlanta community, though, that lengthy list of school supplies distributed on the first day can be intimidating. When you’re counting dollars and cents to pay the electric bill and buy food, where will you get the cash for a new backpack, fresh notebooks, and pens?

Many South Atlanta residents have come to count on NAPC Mission Partner FCS to provide high quality, low cost school supplies. FCS believes passionately that parents should receive the dignity of providing for their own children. So FCS will stock their Carver Neighborhood Market with backpacks full of supplies that parents can purchase at a reduced, affordable rate.

Your support of this Back To School Drive allows FCS to offer this valuable exchange to our local families. FCS continues to serve our neighbors in this unique fashion, and families look forward to coming to the store each year and buying the supplies they need. Your support ensures that every parent leaves with more than just a backpack - they will also maintain their pride and dignity as they provide for their children.

HOW YOU CAN HELP:

Buy a backpack and fill it with the following items:

  • pens
  • pencils
  • notebook paper
  • rulers
  • markers
  • spiral notebooks
  • composition notebooks
  • folders
  • crayons
  • erasers
  • scissors
  • glue

Donation bins will be located at NAPC in The Sphere Lobby on the second floor or at the NAPC Reception Desk on the third floor.
