Steven’s Hope for Children To Help Children Prepare For Upcoming School Year

[UPLAND] Steven’s Hope is holding a backpack drive to help children be prepared for a successful school year.

“Our goal is to provide 100 children fully stocked backpacks for the new school year,” said Sandy Cappelli, Vice President and Operations Director for Steven’s Hope. ”The backpacks will be distributed to children in need entering grades K through 12. We just need support from the community to help reach the goal.”

Items that are needed to fill the backpacks can downloaded from the Steven’s Hope for Children website at http://stevenshope.org/2014-backpack-drive. This year all backpacks, supplies and donations need to be received by July 30 at 5:00 PM. Deliveries can be made at Steven’s Hope for Children, 1014 W. Foothill Blvd, Suite # B, Upland, CA.

For those that are short on time and would still like to make a donation, a $25.00 donation can help purchase the supplies for these children. Donations can be made by calling the office 866-3-STEVEN or online at http://stevenshope.org/support-us/.

Sandy Cappelli stated that many families Steven’s Hope helps are unable to provide necessities, such as school supplies to their children and that this backpack drive is able to help these families have a sense of normalcy back in their lives.
