Hi am 13 years old and the founder of a non profit organization "Backpacks 4 Kids AZ", I created Backpacks 4 Kids AZ when one of my friends failed an assignment because she did not have paper and pencil at home. My organization provides backpacks filled with school supplies to low income students in the community and this year we started a new program "Love Bundles" a backpack filled with hygiene products, a blanket and a toy for kids entering foster care.
We believe it is important for students to be active in the community and help other members of the community , it's an experience they will carry with them the rest of their life, knowing the impact that they made.
We currently have 3 businesses collecting school supplies, and so far we have received over 400 backpacks with school supplies to help us provide kids in need with the school supplies they need.
