June 13, 2017

givebackpacksMCPS needs your help to raise funds to purchase backpacks filled with school supplies for students in need. This is the fifth year for the Give BACKpacks initiative, which is sponsored by the Partnerships Unit in collaboration with the MCPS Educational Foundation. During the 2016–2017 campaign, nearly 18,000 backpacks were given to students at 76 schools and through the School Counseling, Residency and International Admissions Office.

A $10 donation will provide a student in need with a new backpack, filled with school supplies. Consider donating at the following Giving Levels to reach more students: $300, $1,500, $6,500, $25,000 or $50,000.
