Story

Studies show that when kids have new school supplies of their own:

  • Grades, classroom behavior, and engagement improve
  • Self-esteem increases
  • Attitudes toward school and learning strengthen

Metropolitan Ministries works to get kids the supplies they need by providing backpacks, uniforms, and school supplies to more than 5,000 children annually.

We work to help them.

By hosting an annual live “Buzzed” Spelling Bee + Backpack Drive, we raise money to buy the items that students need most as they enter the new school year. 

We've provided backpacks for over 1,080 kids, and we hope to add to that amount this year!

We have already collected over 200 backpacks this year thanks to our amazing sponsor Align HCM

Now, we're ready to add to the pile. A donation of just $20 can buy a backpack for child in need!
